The Abbey, a Cape May Victorian by 


One of the fanciest Victoriain houses in Cape May, New Jersey (USA), the Abbey, constructed during the winter of 1869 – 1870 at a cost of $20,000.
The house was designed by famous Cape May architect Stephen Decatur Button who over three decades designed more than forty buildings in the tiny resort.
Button’s influence was even greater because pattern books featured structures that had his imprint and local builders would use pattern books to “design” cottages for those who could not afford an architect. This is one of his surviving masterpieces, the John McCreary House located at Columbia Avenue and Gurney Street. McCreary was a coal baron who resided in Philadelphia and summered in Cape May.
