The Octagon Hall

By Linda Tancs

Kentucky’s only eight-sided house, Octagon Hall in Franklin boasts a storied past, its nooks and crannies serving as hiding places for Confederate soldiers during the Civil War.  This one-of-a-kind home, built by plantation owner Andrew Jackson Caldwell in 1847, has a storied present as well.  Regularly featured on shows like Ghost Hunters, Kentucky’s marvel is reputedly haunted.  Lest you think that you can book a night there to experience its ghostly apparitions, that privilege is reserved for reputable investigative teams.
