Octagon House Museum

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>The Octagon House Museum is a historical landmark in Hudson, Wisconsin and is located on 3rd Street. It was built in 1855 for the Moffat-Hughes family, who came from New York and lived in the house for 102 years -- spanning four generations of the family. The octagonal design of the house was popular in the 1850s on the east coast because it allowed the light and air to travel through the house.</p>
<p>The house contains a music room, dining room, parlor and kitchen on the first floor. A sleeping porch, sewing room, guest bedroom, master bedroom and children’s bedroom are located on the second level of the house. The St. Croix Historical Society purchased the Octagon House in 1964 and turned it into a museum for guided tours. It continues to this day to sustain the Victorian style of the 19th century.</p>
