  • A very interesting place to visit, and learn more about the Jewish culture and religion. I hadn't been there in years, our docent was extremely knowledgeable and made it a fun place to be
  • 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 social prominence. The home passed down through several generations of the family to Norfolk mayor Barton Myers, who carried out early architectural restoration in 1892. The Moses Myers House was one of the first brick homes built in Norfolk after the Revolutionary War, during which saw most of the town leveled by British bombardment and subsequent fire. The home contains a remarkable number of furnishings original to the family, including Gilbert Stuart’s companion portraits of Moses Myers and his wife, Eliza, as well as works by Thomas Sully.
