Octagon House (The)
This proves that fadism is not a recent phenomenon. The design of the Octagon House, an oddity built in 1861 is based on a popular theory of the mid-1800s, namely that people inhabiting a space of this shape would live healthier, happier lives. The building now houses a museum of American Colonial and Federal Era decorative arts and historical documents. Another octagon house, not open to the public, can be seen on the 1000 block of Green Street.
Very informative and personalized tours. Lovely period furniture plus unique items I had never seen before such as how and why playing card decks differ from today's! The 'signing room' is a rare treasure - a must see.
The Octagon House is maintained by the Society of Colonial Dames. Though the House is from the 1800s, it is decorated as if it was a colonial house from the 1700s, which is interesting. They have all kinds of colonial artifacts and information. It's a lovely place to visit.
