The Octagonal Poultry House, also known as the Walter P. Taylor Octagon, is an historic octagonal farm building located in Cold Spring, in Lower Township in Cape May County, New Jersey, United States. It was built to house hens, who supposedly like to nest in corners. Eventually it became a children's playhouse. Today the broom maker works there at Historic Cold Spring Village. Historic Cold Spring Village originally used it as a storage shed, but eventually recognized its potential as a good place to learn about the art of needlework and crocheting.[2]

On March 14, 2008. it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
