Cape May’s only Victorian House Museum! The Emlen Physick Estate offers a look back at our Victorian past as evidences 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.

The Physick’s distinctive home illustrates their changing tastes as well as the particulars of the Victorian lifestyle in Cape May.
