Octagon House hosts fall preview

The Octagon House Museum Gift Shop will host a Fall Halloween preview and reception on Friday, Sept. 26, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The public is invited to preview the new selection of fall merchandise and vintage reproduction decorations. Additionally, the Museum Gift Shop features a nice selection of linens and silver; decorative items for the home and garden; and Victorian inspired gifts.

To encourage "buying local," all St. Croix County residents will receive a 10 percent discount off their purchases during the preview hours.

Also, during this special Fall Halloween preview, wine and appetizers will be served as shoppers look for that perfect gift.

Proceeds from the gift shop support the operation of the Octagon House Museum Complex.

The gift shop is located behind the Octagon House Museum at 1004 Third Street in Hudson, Wis. and is open during regular Museum hours.

The Museum complex is open for guided tours on the weekends, in September and October, Saturdays from noon to 4:30 p.m. and Sundays from 2 - 4:30 p.m.

They are happy to accommodate special tours during the week for groups of 10 or more by appointment. Call (715) 386-2654 to schedule your special tour of the Octagon House Museum and Gift Shop.
