    1849 James Dwight Dana House 1849 Henry Austin. HLH24. Statistics Dept. Hillhouse Avenue 24. <> East facade on Hillhouse Ave. Italianate Villa for Professor of Geology James Dwight Dana, BA 1833. <> "Henry Austin was particularly enamored of the so-called candelabra columns and introduced them into the American architectural vocabulary." O'Gorman Henry Austin: In every variety of architectural style (Middletown, 2008) Similar columns support the porch at the Willis Bristol House 1845 Henry Austin. Wooster Square. Chapel St. 584. <> In my opinion it resembles an Indian lotus capital, here used upside down.
