CAPE MAY – New state demands for fire protection at the 135-year-old historic Emlen Physick House in Cape May have created a potential financial crisis that the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities is hoping to alleviate with contributions from the public.

Addition of a fire escape to the three-story building is estimated to cost between $150,000 and $300,000, which would deplete MAC’s Legacy Fund started 13 years ago to meet emergency demands. This will be the first time MAC has had to turn to the fund and it will leave it virtually empty.
