Armour Stiner Octagon House
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.
Where: Armour Stiner Octagon House, 45 West Clinton Avenue, Irvington, NY 10533
