The Abbey (Alnwick Hall) is located on 355 Madison Avenue and Canfield Road in Morristown, New Jersey.
One of many elaborate houses that once stood along the stretch of Madison Avenue known as “Millionaires' Row,” this survivor of the Gilded Age was built for Edward P. Meany (1854-1938), New Jersey Judge Advocate General and Director of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company, and his wife, Rosaline.
The Meanys based their 1904 home on the design of Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, England. From 1961 to 1984 the structure served as Saint Mark’s Lutheran Church. Today it is an office building known as “The Abbey.”
Save the Abbey
Built in 1904, Alnwick Hall is today the only remaining mansion on “Millionaire’s Row,” which dotted Madison Avenue in Morristown 100 years ago. Originally owned by Edward and Rosaline Meany, the Abbey recently returned to prominence as host of this year’s Mansions in May fundraiser for the Women’s Association for the Morristown Medical Center. Alnwick Hall was completely restored to its former grandeur by many area designers for the event. Now that the event is over, however, the future of this great Morristown landmark is in jeopardy. The “Save the Abbey” campaign has been created to prevent the Abbey from being demolished. It needs your help to survive.
