Vintage Octagon Homes

The Zelotes Holmes House in Laurens, South Carolina, was built from 1859-1862, using the "gravel wall construction" (poured concrete) advocated in Fowler's book. The house is unusually large with each outside wall measuring 21 feet. The pink granite foundation supports the "gravel walls" of slaked lime, sand and stone, 18 " thick in the cellar and tapering to 12" at the roof. The exterior is finished in tan colored smooth stucco, scored to imitate stone. The house features 14 octagonal chimneys, three original porches and a cellar with dirt floor under the entire house.
