Whitney Mansion is located in Glassboro, Gloucester County, New Jersey, United States. Also known as Hollybush, the historic home was used as the Rowan University President's Residence until 1998. Since 2003, Rowan University has spent more than $3 million to restore the mansion. It is now being used as a meeting place and museum.[3]

In 1967, the mansion hosted the Glassboro Summit Conference, a summit meeting between United States President Lyndon B. Johnson and Soviet Union Premier Alexei Kosygin.

The mansion was built in 1849 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 5, 1972.
