EMIEN PHYSICK ESTATE

A visit to the Physick Estate today offers a look back at our Victorian past as evidenced by its architecture, decorative arts, customs, and the lives of one particular Cape May family, the Physicks. Emlen Physick Jr., his widowed mother, Frances Ralston, and his maiden aunt Emilie Parmentier moved into their home when it was completed in 1879. *Cape May MAC (Museums + Arts + Culture) is a multi-faceted non-profit organization that promotes the restoration, interpretation, and cultural enrichment of the Cape May region for its residents and visitors.  Always check the website or call to get accurate dates and times!
