This gallery features the beauty of Monmouth University located on the east coast of New Jersey; a mile from the Atlantic Ocean. In its hey day the area was the summer playground for the rich and famous. Today two of the most opulent mansions from the era are the focal points of the campus; Wilson Hall and and the Guggenheim Library.Woodrow Wilson Hall, formerly known as the Shadow Lawn mansion, was built in 1929 at a cost of $10.5 million as the private residence of former F.W. Woolworth Co. president Hubert Templeton Parson. Wilson Hall was entered in the National Register of Historic Places. In 1985, the U.S. Department of the Interior designated it a National Historic Landmark. It is now the focal point of Monmouth University in New Jersey. Wilson Hall has been described in newspapers throughout the world, is featured in many books on architecture and art, and has been used as backdrop for innumerable print ads and television commercials. It also served as the setting for the 1982 film version of Annie.
