Octagon House in Shelby Township

Octagonal homes were quite popular back in the mid 1800's but very few have survived into present day. The Loren Andrus Octagon House in Shelby Township has a large group of supporters who have worked tirelessly to preserve and restore this beautiful home. This 1860 victorian structure has a spiral staircase that goes all the way up to the cupola. It is open at various times throughout the year for teas, open houses and holiday events. A quilters' guild meets the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 10 to 2 to sew and enjoy the ambiance.
