  • Interesting, still undergoing restoration, informative staff. Beautiful setting.
  • We loved this historical haunted house. The guide was awesome.
  • I have yet to visit the Octagon House and am extremely interested in doing so. You see, I am a CALDWELL and paternal records indicate relatives in Ky. and Ohio. I AM at odds by Harriet Morton Caldwell being represented as mistress of this house. The true history should list Andrew and his first wife, Elizabeth Akers Caldwell as featured owners. Elizabeth had quite a hand in the building of the house. I have a lot of questions remaining about family and hope to see this house in the near future. I hope you take my posting to heart, I feel a correction should be made.
  • Very intriguing building steeped in history. My wife loves that it is haunted
  • Beautiful home.
