Rosalie Meany loved throwing lavish, show-stopping parties for the highest of high society. For one Christmas party, she wore a custom gown decorated with twinkling tree lights. Another time, she hosted an exclusive performance by Metropolitan Opera singer Madame Alma Gluck for 200 guests in her impressive great hall.
Meany had the right house for such excesses. Her palace was a castle called Alnwick Hall, one of the many opulent estates that once lined Madison Avenue in Morristown, an area dubbed Millionaires’ Mile in its heyday.
