Hollybush Mansion

About the Hollybush Mansion:

In the mid-1800s, Hollybush was already a notable Victorian home, the estate of the Whitney family and evidence of its success in the glass industry. But in 1967, Hollybush and the campus of Rowan University (then Glassboro State College) became the epicenter of international news as the leaders of the world’s superpowers met for talks at the historic mansion. On Friday, June 23, and Sunday, June 25, 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson and Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin joined together for the Summit at Hollybush—nearly 10 hours of talks that helped quell tensions between the two countries during the height of the Cold War.
