Springtime @ the Octagon House – Historic House & Landscape Tour

April 28, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Experience this whimsical 1872 Summer home and its marvelously intact, 19th-century landscape during the most delightful time of the year!

The tour will include a brief history of specimen plants original to the property, the carefully restored Lord and Burnham greenhouse, the wonderfully romantic foxglove garden, (shaped in the exact size and footprint of the house itself!), and the charming Octagonal birdhouse, (a scaled-down replica of the house). Visitors will also experience the house’s wrap-around veranda that offers 360-degree views of the lush landscape, as well as particular architectural details which relate specifically to native plants and foliage of the grounds. Finally, the tour will continue inside the house with an interior tour of the first, second and third floors, which retain their magnificent ornamentation and furnishings.
