Moses Myers House

Once a month we hold a free tour of special emphasis at the Moses Myers House, 323 E. Freemason Street, adjacent to MacArthur Center.

This month we look at life during wartime.

All of the things that made Norfolk an appealing and prosperous port city also made it an enticing target for enemies at our shores during times of war.

Join us as we follow members of the Myers family through the the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War in this month's talk. Free.

SHOWN ABOVE: A cannon, ca. 1810, believed to be an artifact of the War of 1812. It was dredged from the channel of the Elizabeth River near the Gosport Navy Yard in Portsmouth, suggesting it was involved in the Battle of Craney Island on June 22, 1813.
