HISTORICAL SOCIETY CHANGES NAME TO HISTORY CENTER IN 2017 - On January 1, 2017 the Oneida County Historical Society became the Oneida County HISTORY CENTER. The OCHC's new DBA reflects our goals of being inclusive and relevant in the 21st century. Our name has changed, but our mission hasn't - to preserve the past as a source of information and enlightenment for those who are living today, and for our descendants. The Oneida County History Center will continue to operate a research library, exhibit gallery, bookstore, and host educational and public programs. Our hours of operation are Tuesday-Friday 10:00 am- 4:00 pm, and Saturdays 10:00 am- 2:00 pm. We hope you can join us in 2017.
