Farmington, Maine Historical Society
The Octagon


In May 2013, the FHS became proud owners of "The Octagon." Work has already begun on sorting and organizing the contents, so that the building can be opened for functions and events.    

Built in 1858, it is one of 19 in Maine and 400 in the US. It has been occupied by the Mallett family for the past century. On the National Register of Historic Places, The Octagon sits in the downtown and is one of Farmington's historic landmarks.
Community involvement and fundraising is being planned.  If there ever was a time to support Farmington's history, it is now!
