Hollybush Mansion

The Historical Gem of Rowan

Hollybush Mansion, built in 1849 for industrialist Thomas Whitney and his family, forms the nucleus of Rowan University. The house has served as a dormitory, the residence of the college president, a museum, and a meeting facility. In 1967, while in use as the residence of the college president, United States President Lyndon B. Johnson and Soviet Premier Alexei B. Kosygin held a summit meeting at Hollybush. Hollybush is located on the university campus, a minute's walk from the administration building, classrooms and dormitory buildings.
