The Octagonal House Decoration Art Museum is one of the few octagonal buildings in San Francisco. For those who like to look at old furniture, this is a museum worth visiting. It displays many very expensive antique furniture.
The Octagonal House Museum is a very beautiful building, and it is reported to be some years old. Since we didn’t go in to visit, it’s not good to comment, but the surrounding scenery is also very good, even walking is very comfortable and comfortable
As the name suggests, the shape of the octagonal house is an eight-cornered pavilion-like building. It is two or three stories high. The area inside is not large, but the decoration is very beautiful. There are many old things to visit.
The Octagon House, as its name says it, was designed and built with eight sides, believing that such a building would make its habitants happier and healthier. It was built in 1861 by owners Harriet and William McElroy. Back then, octagon houses were gaining popularity, but over the years most of them were destroyed to clear land for newer buildings. In 1952 this house was at risk of being demolished, until The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in California bought it and restored it. Years later the city named it a landmark of San Francisco and its now a museum. Make sure you head upstairs to check out the historical documents from the colonial and early American history. Also, the schedule is very particular, plan accordingly.
The design of the octagonal house looks very good inside.
