I did not know about this site until I read about it in the Norfolk attractions guide. I am so glad I decided to visit it! It is downtown and within walking distance of the Norfolk History Museum and the Fire and Police Museum, so one can visit all three museums in a short time span. All are free. Moses... More

I had lived less than a mile from this house for 2 years, but I never went to it until after I had dome back for a visit 6 years later. It is a beautiful house with unique ornate decorations and some interesting family history on their involvement and support of the city of Norfolk. If you are looking to... More

This gem of historic preservation sits in the shadow of the MacArthur Shopping Mall. Park there and use the Freemason Street exit. Ask for a guided tour and you will be rewarded with a companion who will enrich your experience. I was one of a handful of visitors on a Saturday afternoon, and I was privileged to see some behind...

It is well-done but is especially good at portraying the Jewish influence on the building of Norfolk. It has great architecture inside and out and even has terrific paintings including an original Stuart. Its a good way to clear your head after ferocious shopping experiences at MacArthur Mall. You can even get pretty close to it riding the new light... More

The 1792 Moses Myers House is unique as it contains over 70% of its original furnishings including the original owners' portraits by Gilbert Stuart. The Chrysler Museum which now owns the house gives attention to presenting the house as it was in the early 19th century. Thus, it is restored to that period and in addition to the original furnishings... More
