The Taylor-Whittle

House

1791

 

Located on the corner of Freemason and Duke Streets in downtown Norfolk, the Taylor-Whittle House ranks among the finest late-eighteenth century Federal style town houses in Virginia. It is also one of the few surviving examples of its type left in the Tidewater Virginia.


The quality of both the design and workmanship gives evidence to the prosperity

and high cultural standards of Norfolk’s Post-Revolutionary era. The house’s close similarity to the well-known Moses Myers House on the same street is quite apparent.


Neither architect nor builder for either house is known.
