Chalfonte Hotel, Cape May, New Jersey

The Chalfonte Hotel, on the corner of Howard and Sewell Streets in Cape May, New Jersey was built in 1875-76 by Colonel Henry Sawyer.

Built in the Italianate style, the summer resort managed to survive the great fire in 1878 that burnt and destroyed many of the Cape May hotels of the same vintage.

It is listed on the National Historic Register.

The building is charming, and worth seeing.
