Here's the Victoria Mansion on the corner of Park and Danforth Streets in the city. Designed and built by New Haven architect Henry Austin in 1858-60. It is one of the grandest Italian villa style residences in the country. I remember on a field trip in high school, it was a real treat to walk up its grand staircase turn back and to notice the elaborate ornamental design seen on every cornice and chandelier. I haven't been back in it in a while, and in the Christmas season it's suppose to be amazingly decorated. Maybe this season, it'll be in the cards.
