Some history about the Emlen Physick Estate. The mansion was built by Dr. Emlen Physick, he built the estate 142 years ago in 1879. The mansion has 18 rooms and many consider it an architectural wonder, which was built by famed American architect Frank Furness. Many feel it's a wonderful example of Victorian Stick Style architecture.

When I first entered the mansion I had a claustrophobic feeling, it feels like the walls are closing in on me. Maybe because there are dark colors incorporated throughout the house and lots of thick tapestries. It just feels dark and eerily quiet.

Of course, old dolls are always creepy and there are a few! the upstairs looks spooky and the bedrooms feel like someone is watching you.

The mansion was also featured in season 1, episode 6 of Haunted Towns on Destination America. The home has also been featured on several podcasts.

One of the most prominent ghosts in the home is  Dr. Physick’s Aunt Emilie, according to psychic medium Craig McManus in an article from Cape May Vacation Rentals. McManus also cited other paranormal residents of the home including Dr. Physick's Mothers' younger daughter...  Isabelle, or Bella. Plus Dr. Physick's dogs...yes ghost dogs! All I know is that as soon as you go in this mansion you feel something...just weird.
