Event Description

Irvington, New York
October 1-31, 2021


18 miles north of New York City, high on a bank along The Hudson River sits The Armour-Stiner (Octagon) House.  Built in 1860, this enigmatic, eight-sided, domed landmark is the pride of the Village of Irvington, in the heart of “Sleepy Hollow Country.”  During the month of October The Octagon House is pleased to announce a special 'Myths and Mysteries' tour to celebrate the Halloween season.


For years, local rumors have swirled around The Octagon House, implying its connection to the spirit world.  Join us as we delve into the myths and mysteries of the house -- from its unique dome shape resembling an ancient Roman temple, to its octagonal floor plan rooted in 19th century Phrenology, to speculations of a resident ghost, we’ll share stories from the current owners who have described their experiences of the house as something otherworldly.  Come hear tales of the unexplained and uncanny events that have occurred in this magical house while experiencing the delight of this meticulously restored architectural wonder.


The tour will run approximately 1 hour and is best suited for guests ages 12 and up.  Parking is free but limited, so we ask that guests arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to the tour. We require masks to be worn when inside the house.  Not suitable for wheelchair users, people with limited mobility or individuals with difficulty walking up and down flights of stairs.  


Please note: The Octagon House is very much a private family home.  Access to the house and grounds is available ONLY to ticket holders during the time and date assigned.  Our family thanks you in advance for your understanding.
