  • Fowler's Folly, built during 1848-1853, was the octagonal home of Orson S. Fowler in Fishkill, New York. It was a "monumental" house for its time, with 4 stories and 60 rooms. Fowler first published his book, The Octagon House: A House for All in 1848. The house was condemned as a public health hazard and dynamited in 1897. Orson Squire Fowler was author of an architectural pattern book that ignited a fad for octagon houses in the United States and perhaps also in Canada.
