The Main Entrance Door to the Vesta Villa
The main entrance door of the Vesta Villa borrows its principal design elements from the front door of Low Memorial Library at Columbia University. Designed by Charles Follen McKim of the firm McKim, Mead & White and constructed between 1895 and 1897, the neoclassical building serves as a backdrop to the iconic statue Alma Mater, designed by sculptor Daniel Chester French. Details of the door's design elements can be found in Picture 1 and Picture 2.
