Nothing is Impossible @ Octagon House Tour

June 24 @ 11:30 am - June 27 @ 5:00 pm

This special one-hour guided tour tells the story of the last five decades of The Armour-Stiner Octagon House, during which it has been restored from near-ruin to its 1870s glory. Owner and preservation architect Joseph Lombardi once said that restoring The Octagon House was “like assembling a 500,000-piece jigsaw puzzle” – a task so overwhelming that many considered it impossible! While exploring the veranda and three primary floors, visitors will learn about the unbelievably detailed process of determining original interior and exterior paint colors, the magical moments of uncovering new puzzle pieces of the house’s history, and how the dome was saved from near collapse.
