Armour-Stiner Octagon-Historic House Museum Opened For Tours

The Armour-Stiner (Octagon) House is one of the most visually unique homes in the world. It is the only known, fully domed octagonal residence and the only house which replicates Donato Bramante’s 1502 Tempietto in Rome.

After restoration work by its owner, the Armour-Stiner Octagon House opened for tours last year. Visiting historic house museums that are filled with design elements that are often absent in newer homes allows us to see a tangible piece of history up close and personal, and to better grasp what life was like decades ago.
