Opened in 2017, the Oneida Heritage Center’s historic location on Route 5 in Sherrill, NY accommodates several new and exciting offerings based in Oneida culture, including an expansive store stocked with numerous, hand-made arts, crafts, jewelry and hand-carved wood work from local American Indian artisans.

Find an original gift, discover the Oneidas’ legacy of service to the United States, take aim on the regulation-sized indoor archery range, or sign up for a range of cultural craft classes.


Each year, thousands of tourists visit Central New York to experience the profound history linked to our region, harboring significant ties to our country’s inception and development.

The Oneida Heritage Center, managed by Ron Patterson (Wolf Clan), aims to bring that history to life. Its store features hand-made American Indian crafts, an expansive archery range – the only indoor range in Central New York, and a special military museum with numerous historical artifacts that visitors can see up close.
