A visit to the Emlen Physick estate is a virtual trip back in time to the Victorian era. Built in1879, the Physick Mansion is one of the finest examples of “Stick Style” architecture in America. Its exterior is distinguished by noted architect Frank Furness’s trademark features, including corbeled chimneys, hooded dormers, and huge stick-like brackets on the porch. It was the former home of one of Cape Mays wealthiest residents. The home owner, Dr Physick was from a prominent Philadelphia family and was so affluent that he didn't even bother to practice medicine.
The 18 room mansion home looks just as it did back at the turn of the century with period furnishings (many original), numerous antiques and wonderful Victorian decor. The property is owned by the Mid Atlantic Center for the Arts and they maintain the property, run tours while providing a memorable trip back in history.
If you visit Cape May this is a "must see" 4 star historic attraction. One of Cape Mays best.
