Octagon House Program Coming on April 2

The next meeting of the Rochester Avon Historical Society will feature author Judith Anders, who will discuss the history of the Loren Andrus Octagon House in neighboring Washington Township. This eight-sided brick residence is now an historical museum listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has a varied and fascinating history. Anders is a past president of the Friends of the Octagon House and is the author of a recent book on the building entitled The Loren Andrus Octagon House, 1860, Washington, Michigan: Myths, Facts and Legends.
The program will be held on Thursday, April 2 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rochester Hills Public Library, 500 Olde Towne Road. The event is free and everyone is invited to attend. (For a full schedule of the Rochester Avon Historical Society's upcoming events, visit the RAHS web site.)
