Members Only! Octagon House

November 7 2020 | 12:00pm to 1:30pm

In the late 1850s, a friendly neighbor rivalry in Macomb County developed into a contest to see who could build the most unusual house. Although Loren Andrus was nearly bankrupt by the time his eight-sided house was completed in 1860, his house was hands-down the winner. The Octagon House is Italianate in style and surrounded on six sides by a Corinthian-columned porch. A dramatic spiral staircase winds from the first floor to the third-story cupola. This tour is your chance to explore the house in its holiday splendor and learn about this unique architectural highlight to the landscape.
