The Swart-Wilcox House Museum is an 1807 German Palatine venacular house that is the oldest house in the City of Oneonta. Built by Revolutionary War soldier, Lawrence Swart, it has been home to only two families in over 200 years. The house has been restored to the 1870-1910 era when the Henry Wilcox family lived there.
