History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The village was formerly the site of a village of the Oneida tribe, established in the beginning of the 18th century to move farther from attacks from the French colony of Quebec. The Village of Oneida Castle was named for the last great home or "castle" of the Oneida Indian tribe. Indian Villages were referred to as castles by Europeans who felt the villages looked like castles.
