An architectural walking tour of the Mansion House and Kenwood neighborhood will be held on Saturday, August 12 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm at the Oneida Community Mansion House.
Attendees will have the opportunity to look at architectural clues about how neighborhoods, and the way we live, have changed over time. Participants can learn the history of the Mansion House and the Kenwood neighborhood of Oneida, while seeing distinctive architectural styles in this walking tour of about a dozen houses (exteriors only) designed by Arts & Crafts architect Ward Wellington Ward and by noted architect Theodore Skinner.
The program will begin at the Mansion House and will take place rain or shine. The program is free to members of OCMH; $7 for non-members, including house admission. Proceeds benefit collection management, preservation and the interpretive mission of the Mansion House.
