The Oneida Community

1834 USA: The Oneida Community was founded in upstate New York, becoming under John Humphrey Noyes in 1848 a communistic society in which work and life were to be shared. Friendly cooperation with the surrounding Indian tribes was actively sought and achieved. The Oneida Community practised communalism (in the sense of communal property and possessions) and group marriage. The community dissolved in 1881, and eventually became the giant silverware company, Oneida Limited.
