About The House


We welcome you into an exciting opportunity to experience a rare and unusual house full of history!

The Wilcox Octagon house is a rare home built in 1856, and is on the National Registry of Historical Places. It is one of the few octagon homes left in the Eastern part of the United States that is restored, and has public access to all of its levels.

Unique to this house is the central staircase where you can travel through 5 different floors, and up 62 steps to the cupola where you can view all of Camillus.

Many of its features are intriguingly octagonal, and are built to unique specifications. Materials used to build the home have been harvested from the farm itself. Restored rooms on 3 floors and a Gallery of displays on the second level give an insight as to how the original owners lived during those times
