Alnwick Hall, known in recent years as The Abbey, was once the residence of Edward Peter Meany and his wife, Rosalie Behr. The brick mansion, designed for the Meanys by architect, Percy Griffin, and built between 1903 and 1904, was modeled after various fifteenth and sixteenth-century English prototypes, including Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, England. It is now a rare and largely unaltered survivor of “Millionaires’ Row,” the stretch of Madison Avenue between Morristown and Madison that, during the area’s Gilded Age, was lined by a nearly unbroken series of large and elegant estate houses.

Mansion in May is the preeminent designer showhouse in the New Jersey-New York area, attracting over 33,000 visitors and typically held every two years. The Abbey will be open to the public for Mansion in May from May 1 to May 31, 2017 and will be available for both public and private tours and events.

Advanced tickets will be available online and at select local retails outlets early 2017.
