Octagon House Museum Closing for Season Sept. 30, 2018

 

Due to the upcoming renovation of the Octagon House Museum Visitor Center, the museum will close for the season on Sunday, Sept. 30.

 

Tours of 10 or more attendees may still be scheduled during the month of October by calling 920-261-2796.
