Historic Wilson Hall

Designated a Historical Landmark in 1985

November 1 - December 21, 2012
Pollak Gallery
Free & Open to Public
The splendor of the golden age of American palaces will be featured in
 an exhibit of photographs depicting Shadow lawn estate as it appeared from 1903 through 1937. The exhibit features images of the original colonial wood frame structure built in 1903 that was destroyed by fire in 1927, and the neoclassical French limestone structure that replaced it in 1929. The exhibit includes images of President Woodrow Wilson making his acceptance speech on the steps
 of Shadow Lawn, the opulent décor of the interiors, and the greenhouses and grounds that supported the estate.
This exhibition is part of an ongoing historical project that we hope to grow and enhance by learning more through oral histories and individual memories. If you or a family member had a special connection or story to share about Shadow Lawn Mansion or Wilson Hall, please submit it at: www.monmouth.edu/wilsonhallmemories. We will be collecting this information for use in future research and exhibitions.
