DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY:

This octagonal, 12-room, two-bath house was originally built in 1856, on the grounds of an indian village, an 1814 trading post, fort and settlement house. It was designed by Orson Fowler, and built by Isaac Brown, with ulterior motives. It was used as a station in the underground railroad, helping to move ex-slaves to Canada. In the house, there are hidden passages and an underground tunnel, which wasn't found until the Hanson family saved The 1856 Octagon House from the wrecking ball in 1975, and restored the house and grounds.

On this two lot property belonging to the Octagon House, there is a large woodshed and a carriage house, which has been turned into a single rental property. The garden also has a hexagonal garden.

The current owner, Helen Hanson shares the house with the public, offering tours of some of the rooms, set up as a museum. She is selling The Historic 1856 Octagon House as of June 2007.

HISTORY OF MANIFESTATIONS:

This house and its land has long had a history of many uses, strong emotions, adventures and probably a few deaths. Through all of its history, entities have glommed on to this house for probably variety of reasons, basically behaving themselves, going about their business, with a few mischievous habits.

MANIFESTATIONS:

Paranormal and strange occurrences have been witnessed by the living.

Items are moved and sometimes go missing.

An owner reports that a spinning wheel on display was found completely taken apart in just a moment. Complete and normal one moment; completely taken apart moment later.

Doors open and shut by themselves, without help from the living or the wind.

Footfalls are heard on the steps when no one alive is there.

Shadows are seen in rooms, causing cold spots.

When it is dark, the living see lights, and hear sounds.

Something unseen gets some chuckles teasing pets within the 12 roomed house.

The entity of a young boy is one of the unseen residents here.

Witnesses have seen the apparition of the young boy going about his business in different parts of the house.
