“The Faded Fad of Octagon Houses”

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Join Greene historian Peg Ross to learn all about octagon houses. The program will relate the history of the octagon house in general and the man who started the fad. Through a Power Point there will be photos of octagons in Cortland County as well as other nearby counties. You will see photos of some spectacular octagons in the United States as well as many in New York State that are on the National Register of Historic Places. Many of the octagon houses have interesting stories that will be told. Bring your own lunch if you wish, and we will provide dessert and beverages. Please park at the Homer Avenue Methodist Church parking lot from 12-1pm only. This program is free and open to the public.
