1856 Italianate Octagon in Historic Marshall, Michigan

The Pendleton-Alexander House was built by Increase Pendleton in 1856 after Orson Fowler came to Marshall, Michigan to give a week-long seminar on the health benefits of living in a house shaped liked an octagon. The home's facade was originally brick and was a much simpler style than it is currently. When the home was purchased by Morgan Alexander at about 1875, he embellished it with the ornate details it now has, added the rear wing and stuccoed the exterior. It has thirteen rooms with two fireplaces, beautiful plaster work, medallions and chandeliers. Additionally, there is a three bay carriage house to the rear of the home.
