The Oneida Country

The Oneida Indians joined the Mohawks. Onondagas, Cayugas and Senecas, about 1550, to form the Five Nations, or Iroquois Confederacy. This was the legendary "Great Peace" made by the Indian statesmen Hiawatha and Dekanawidah. Called "People of the Standing Stone" from an upright rock at their meeting place, the Oneidas had their principal settlement south of Oneida Lake. In 1722, the Tuscaroras coming from North Carolina settled west of the Oneidas and became the sixth Iroquois nation. Living along the Mohawk River trade route and near the source of the Susquehanna River, the Oneidas were hunters, traders and farmers. Influenced by their missionary Samuel Kirkland, the Oneidas sided with the Americans during the Revolution while others of the Confederacy aided the British. Some of their lands were opened for settlement by the Fort Stanwix Treaty of 1768; later more Oneida land was ceded to the state.
Early in the nineteenth century turnpikes were built through this region providing a principal route westward and were followed by the Erie Canal in 1825. Later came the railroads and improved highways. The fertile soil of this bottom land is intensively cultivated for large scale truck farming.
