Volunteer With Us!
Welcome to The Octagon House of Camillus!

The house built in 1856 is on the National Registry of Historical Places and is one of a few left in the Eastern part of the United States that is restored.

Unique to this house is the central staircase that travels thru 5 floors up 62 stairs to the cupola where you can view all of Camillus. Many of its features which are octagonal and built to unique specifications have materials 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.
