Step inside this rare and unusual home from the 19th Century, full of vintage charm and intrigue. It's one of the few octagon homes left in the Eastern part of the United States that's not only restored, but also enjoys public access on every floor level. Unique to this house is the central spiral staircase, where you can explore through 5 different floors, and climb your way up sixty-two steps to the cupola where you can view all of the Camillus scenery. Many of the home's features are intriguingly octagonal, built to unique specifications, and materials used to construct the building have been harvested from the farm itself. Restored rooms on 3 floors and a Gallery of displays on the second level will share an insight into how the original owners lived during those times of days gone by. The Wilcox Octagon Museum is on the National Registry of Historical Places.
