This Landmark Home, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is also one of Wisconsin's most haunted sites.  Bring your friends for a fascinating visit, and perhaps you too will experience something... unexpected.
 
Originally built as an Indian Fort and Trading Post, the Octagon House of Fond du Lac was later used as a safe house for runaway slaves during the Civil War.  Architecturally unique, this oddity  has 12 rooms, and nine passageways!  Docents report strange happenings almost every week! 
 
Open for summer tours and seasonal events, the Octagon House also hosts dinner tours by candlelight.  New this year are our Full Moon Paranormal Dinners, a chance for like minded individuals to gather over candlelight, enjoy a great meal on the house china, dress up in civil war attire (additional fee) and step back into history for a while!

  You might even encounter our resident ghost!

Groups will find many varied collections housed within the walls, including:

porcelain dolls

millinery (hats)

early cookware

vintage china

heirloom clothing

hat pins

perfume bottles

seasonal collectibles
