"The most comprehensive source on octagon houses ever compiled."

Including sequential photos detailing building an octagon house (in VT), biographical information on Orson Fowler (more) the phrenologist who was one of the popularizers of octagonal living in the 1850's, and a special page devoted to unfindable mystery houses. Fowler's 1854 book A Home for All, or the Gravel Wall and Octagon Mode of Building is available in full on Google Books.
