Palladium Building

New Haven, CT  2014

There is no shortage of beautiful buildings in downtown New Haven, especially in the Ninth Square Historic District, an area encompassing 3 blocks located in the central business district of New Haven.  This area was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1984 and comprises 78 buildings built in the mid to late 1800's  and into the early 1900's.  A number of different styles of architecture can be found here.  The Palladium Building was built in 1855 and was originally known as the "Young Men's Institute".  The building has been ascribed to the famous New Haven architect, Henry Austin and can be described as an example of Anglo-Italianante/Renaissance Revival architecture.
