Construction on this architectural gem, the largest octagonal house in the U.S., began in 1860, but was interrupted by the onset of war. A National Historic Landmark, the still-unfinished mansion is an enduring symbol of the impact of the Civil War.

Worth the visit! Our tour guide was very informative. So sad that this home was never completed. Beautiful grounds.

Went there for organized tour. Very interesting if you like architecture. Only the bottom floor is finished, but the unfinished part is equally fascinating.

I don't think you need an advance reservation. However, for the tours, I believe they run every 1/2 hour. If you will check in at the visitor center (on the ground floor), they will advise you. Don't miss the tour, for... More
