Our Mission is to preserve the only known Queen Ann Style Octagonal house with a gabled roof.  This 1883 landmark has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the Zimmerman Bury Octagon House Association continues to share it with the public as a living museum of the middle class Victorian way of life.

Become A VolunteerYou are cordially invited to share your time and talents with us as a special volunteer.  We are seeking people of all ages who have a sincere interest in all things Victorian to assist us in daily tasks as well as special projects and events.  You have the unique opportunity to share a piece of history and help ensure its future.  Our staff is encouraged to constantly research the history of the house, it's contents, life of the era and the activities in which we are involved.  We strive to return to the organic/natural way of life and the recycling which the Victorians practiced, as they were frugal and grateful for all they had.
