Step back in time with a visit to the Chrysler Museum’s historic houses. Located just minutes from the Museum in downtown Norfolk, the Moses Myers House and Willoughby-Baylor House were built in the late 1700s and offer a glimpse of life in Norfolk during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
The Moses Myers House was built in 1792 and draws an exceptionally accurate picture of the life of this prosperous Jewish merchant and his family. More than 70 percent of the fine furnishings and paintings are original to the home.
The ca. 1794 Willoughby-Baylor House features exhibitions of American art from the Chrysler Museum. The Houses are open to visitors Saturday and Sunday from noon–5 p.m. Admission is free.
