Henry J. Bird, one of the founding citizens of Bracebridge, built this octagonal house in 1882, being inspired by a 19th century architectural philosopher, Orson Squire Fowler, who believed that the shape promotes physical and mental health, on top of being the most efficient use of materials and living space. It was also the first house in the area to have electric lighting and indoor plumbing. Octagonal house is supposed to provide more space, and also allows more sun to come in.
