Wakehurst Revisited

Noted in nineteenth century society pages as a granite palace where lavish dinners and balls were staged, Wakehurst served also as a home, first to the Van Alens and now to Salve Regina University. How the vision of James J. Van Alen was adapted and preserved is explored by Sister Therese Antone, Dr. Jayme Hennessy, and Dr Sarah Littlefield.
