Details

Event Type Historic Site Tour/History Description Visit the only known residence built in the form of a domed, ancient classical temple. Created as a whimsical summer retreat in 1872 by tea-importer Joseph Stiner, this National Historic Landmark's shape was based on the theories of Orson Squire Fowler, a phrenologist, who believed octagonal houses enclosed more space, allowed the sun in at all times, and permitted more views into the landscape. This lyrical home retains its magnificent ornamentation and furnishings and the only remaining Egyptian Revival Room in America with its original decoration and furniture. The 1-hour tour is conducted by highly trained docents and includes the three principal floors of the house. 10% discount code for participants of this year's Hudson Valley Ramble: Ramble2022 Sponsoring Organization The Armour-Stiner Octagon House
