Sep. 4 - Dec. 1 OCTAGON HOUSE EXHIBIT: 

An exhibit featuring Danbury's Octagon House will be on display during library hours in the Ruth Haas Library on the WCSU Midtown campus, 181 White St. in Danbury. The Octagon house at 21 Spring St. has intrigued Danburians for more than 150 years. Its design is the embodiment of the philosophy of Orson Fowler, a well-known phrenologist and lecturer in the 19th century. Phrenology was a pseudo-science that promoted the view that one's personality and behavior could be predicted by the shape of one's skull. Fowler believed that an octagonal house with lots of natural light and insulation would benefit its inhabitants' state of mind and also be an economical alternative to standard house designs. The WCSU Archives will exhibit some original editions of Fowler's works and show how one Danburian took Fowler's philosophy to heart and built the house on Spring Street closely adhering to Fowler's design. Free and open to the public. View the online exhibit at http://archives.library.wcsu.edu/omeka/exhibits/show/octagon.
