This redbrick and stone-trimmed Romanesque Revival-style house in the historic Freemason neighborhood was built by prominent banker and merchant James Wilson Hunter in 1894 from plans designed by Boston architect W. P. Wentworth. Hunter and his wife, Lizzie Barnes Hunter, had three children, none of whom ever married and all of whom spent their entire lives here. They bequeathed the house as a museum of Victorian architecture and decorative arts, the role it plays today. Their original furnishings and decorative arts are still here, along with pieces donated by others. It's a fascinating look at how life was lived in Victorian Norfolk. You must take a tour, which departs on the hour and half-hour.
