Armour‐Stiner Octagon House

Historic Site

blank dot

The Armour-Stiner Octagon House is a historic house located in Irvington, NY on the Hudson River. It was originally created as a summer retreat in 1872 by tea importer Joseph Stine. The National Historic Landmark's shape was based on the theories of Orson Squire Fowler, a phrenologist, who believed octagonal houses enclosed more space, allowed the sun in at all times, and permitted more views into the landscape. The house is one of the most visually distinctive homes in the world and is open for guided tours by appointment.
