Welcome To Oneida County

Most people stay and many come back. Could it be our unique, beautiful location at the foothills of the Adirondacks? Our nationally-ranked schools and competitive athletic programs? How about our approach since post-Revolutionary War times of developing new industries of the day and helping them flourish?

We believe in our neighbors and want us all to make a mark. We have embraced countless families and individuals from hundreds of different countries to help them start a life in Oneida County. And they, like those of us who have been here for generations, have spread the word. We are right where we’re supposed to be.
