The Octagon Building at Mount Washington in Baltimore, MD, was designed by Dixon, Balbirnie, and Dixon in 1855 and was built for the Mount Washington Female Seminary. It was occupied by Mount St. Agnes College from 1890 to 1971.

In 1971 Mount St. Agnes College merged with Loyola College and vacated the Octagon Building and the Mt. Washington campus. The 72-acre property was sold to insurer USF&G Corporation, who built a training and development center, an office building, and parking structures adjacent to the Octagon Building to serve as their headquarters. USF&G also renovated the Octagon Building. USF&G merged with the St. Paul Companies in 1998 and vacated the Octagon Building and the Mt. Washington campus. In 2003 Johns Hopkins University bought the Mount Washington campus, and now uses it for conferences and office space; the Octagon Building serves as a hotel.
