The Octagon Washington DC Entry Hall 8 | Architects Foundation


The Octagon

The double doors that separate the Entry Hall from the rest of the house were added by President Madison in 1814. Originally the Entry Hall moved directly into the Stair Hall through a decorative arch. The doors were added as an extra layer of security for the president's home.
