Friday Videos: Charnley-Norwood House

On this early September Friday, close your office door and take your federally mandated 15-minute break watching these two well-done videos about the Charnley-Norwood House in Ocean Springs. For those of you unfamiliar with the house, I will just say six words: Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Katrina. Oh, I’ll add two more: Historic Preservation!

This first one is on MHT’s Save My Place Mississippi Youtube channel.

This shorter video tour with Ron Miller of MDAH’s Gulf Coast office distills the Charnley House’s importance down to its essence.

  1. The Chanley-Norwood House is the coast office of the Mississippi Heritage Trust-stop by for a visit and explore this incomparable historic treasure. Susan Ruudiman gives tours on Thursdays from 1-5 and Saturdays from 10-5.


  2. Excellent Video


  3. This was just an excellent video and such a momentous project. WOW – what a heritage for Ocean Springs. Congratulations to all who helped to restore this building and to add it to the Historic Preservation of Mississippi. Well done.


    • Thanks to all who worked to preserve this beauty! How lucky we are to have 3 FLW homes in our state. I had the privilege of touring the Rosenbaum home in Florence, AL a couple of weeks ago…the most perfect Usonion. The only FLW in Alabama I think.


  4. Thank you for the history of this beautiful home, has a very special place in my heart.
