It's a tough mission to declare anything the "best" in New Jersey, let alone America. This time around we are examining architecture and looking at the "Most Beautiful Buildings" in America. Love Exploring did a recent article about the topic and dived into making a list of the most beautiful buildings in the nation. "From significant government buildings to historic residences and even train stations, this diverse collection of constructions have been deemed the most beautiful in the US. Thanks to research compiled by Angi based on TripAdvisor rankings, we take a look at the most attractive building in every state."

The selection for New Jersey as "Most Beautiful" is an intriguing pick. The Emlen Physick Estate in Cape May, New Jersey. I have visited and toured this unique building and if you are a history lover or weekend ghost hunter, this is a tour you wanna take. It features unique architecture, historical items, and a spooky vibe. This mansion in Southern New Jersey is something to see. The entire estate is decorated in the period style. The Emlen Physick Estate was built 144 years ago in 1879. The estate is located at 1048 Washington St, Cape May, NJ 08204.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of this piece of New Jersey history. "Emlen Physick Jr., his widowed mother, Frances Ralston, and his maiden aunt Emilie Parmentier moved into their home when it was completed in 1879."

According to Love Exploring "Located in Cape May, this is one of the few Victorian-inspired buildings on our list. Built in 1879, the estate is named after its original owner Dr. Emlen Physick – one of Cape May's most prominent citizens. The estate comprises the main house, carriage house plus manicured gardens and grounds."
