Photo of the Week: The Southern Mansion, Cape May, New Jersey

This week’s photo is of the Southern Mansion, in Cape May, New Jersey. Built in 1863 by Philadelphia industrialist George Allen, the house today is reported to be haunted by Allen’s last relative to live in the mansion, Ester Mercur.

According to the Star Ledger, a long, tube-like object was seen in the sky over Somerset County, New Jersey earlier this week.
