Octagon Houses in the United States



Octagon Houses throughout the United States owe their origin and vogue, during the 1850s and 1860s to the publication of a book by Orson Squire Fowler of New York, in 1848, "A Home for All". This book was intended to stimulate the building of houses by Americans on a new and rational plan: the octagonal plan, designed to provide eight rooms on each floor (of two), and advocated as the most healthful because it gave a maximum of sunlight to the rooms, each receiving light at some period of the day. - NRHP
