Myths and Mysteries Tours Coming Soon to NY’s Famous Octagon House! Want In?
There is a house here in New York unlike any other on the block, town or even the country.
Welcome to the Armour-Stiner House in Irvington, New York, also known as the "octagon house". As unusual as the design of the home is, the fact that it is believed to be the only domed octagonal residence still in existence in America makes it one of a kind. Soon you can make an appointment for their "Myths and Mysteries" guided tours.
Celebrate the Halloween season at the Armour-Stiner House with their "Myths and Mysteries Historic House Tour". Is the Octagon House haunted? Is there spirit energy floating through the hallways and up to the dome? According to the home's official website, the current owners have described their experiences as "otherworldly".
Caretakers and tour guides will explore these myths and mysteries starting in September. Each tour is approximately 1 hour and recommended for people 12-years-old and older. Your highly trained docents will guide you through interior viewings of the house.
The house and grounds have been restored to their 1872 appearance. This spectacular home is available throughout the year, at various times, for tours both inside and outside. To check date and ticket availability click HERE.
