Moses Myers House (1792)


The stately Moses Myers House and its peerless collection create an exceptionally accurate picture of the late Federal period and the life of this prosperous Jewish family. Moses Myers, an early American entrepreneur and leading citizen, built the house to accommodate his growing family and prominence. Passing through several generations, Norfolk mayor Barton Myers, began to restore the house to its original beauty in 1892. Containing a remarkable number of furnishings original to the family, the Moses Myers House was one of the first brick homes built in Norfolk after the Revolutionary War, during which time the town was leveled by British bombardment and subsequent fire. The family's paintings include Gilbert Stuart's companion portraits of Moses Myers and his wife, Eliza, as well as works by Thomas Sully.
