The Octagon House is an eight sided structure built in the mid-1800's which has earned part of it's reputation by being the boyhood home of famed attorney Clarence Darrow. The structure has eight trapezoid-shaped rooms and is one of four like it in northeast Ohio.

Clarence Darrow, who played a major role in the historic "Scopes Money Trial" that debated the teaching of Darwin's Theory of Evolution in public schools, lived in the home for 14 years.
