History Speaks: Collecting History (Norfolk)

August 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


The Early Republic era of America was a period of significant change, not only in politics but also in fashion and furnishings. This month, join us for a closer look at the furniture and fine art in the Myers House. Learn how to distinguish a Hepplewhite chair from a Sheraton chair as we explore the incredibly intact collection of this successful merchant family.

About the Myers House:
The Myers House is significant as the most intact, best documented, and surviving, known Jewish residence in the United States of any period before 1800. Moses Myers, an early American entrepreneur, built the house to accommodate his growing family. Initially situated in a very rural setting, the federal-style house set a new standard of sophistication for the rapidly expanding City of Norfolk. It was passed down through five generations of the Myers family who lived in the house from 1795–1931.

Free for Museum members, $10 for non-members.
Registration is required. Space is limited.
