Join the Foundation

Abijah Thomas, Smyth County industrialists had this unique home built on his country home 

The Octagon House Foundation, Inc. was created in 2014 by a group of enthusiastic restoration supporters. Years of neglect and deterioration have created a monumental, but not impossible task.


 Much work has already been done to determine the feasibility of saving this wonderful stately old home.


 After being assured that it can be done, several projects have already been completed to stop further deterioration.  Many citizens of Smyth County, former county citizens, Thomas Family members, and countless others have volunteered to work and made contributions.  Much work remains to be done, but the dream of complete restoration is a powerful motivator. Thank you to all supporters!

Renovation and preservation projects are especially challenging--this one will not be an exception.
