Notes
Survey number HABS NY-5620
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-348).
National Register Number: 75001238
Significance: In addition to eclectically incorporating Gothic, Stick-style, Second Empire and Eastlake detail, this house is one of two domed octagonal residences built in the United States. Its siting, design, and heating-plumbing systems reflect the contemporary mid-19th century architectural philosophies of Orson Squire Fowler, noted phrenologist, sexologist, amateur architect, and author of the popular Octagon House: a Home for All. Additionally, its situation near public transportation to New York City may well be related to George Woodward's ideas on suburban architecture.
