History Speaks: The Architech-tour (Norfolk)
May 7 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
If these walls could talk, what stories would they tell? Join us for a thematic tour of the Myers House on the first Sunday of the month. Take a look behind-the-scenes of the Myers house and explore what the architecture tells us about life in early Norfolk.
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.
