A visit to the Walter Anderson Museum of Art (WAMA) is an enchanting and unique experience. The Walter Anderson Museum was opened in 1991 and is dedicated to the celebration of the works of Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965), an American master, whose depictions of the plants, animals, and people of the Gulf Coast have placed him among the foremost of American painters of the Twentieth Century; and to his brothers, Peter Anderson (1901-1984), master potter and founder of Shearwater Pottery; and James McConnell Anderson (1907-1998), noted painter and ceramist. The watercolors, drawings, oils, block prints, ceramics, and carvings by the three Anderson brothers are all represented in the museum’s permanent collection. Adjacent to the museum is the Ocean Springs Community Center, home of Walter Anderson’s largest mural.

Charnley-Norwood House

509 East Beach Drive, Ocean Springs, MS 39564

The home, located at 509 East Beach Drive in Ocean Springs, was designed and built in 1890 by renowned architect Louis Sullivan of Chicago, also known as the father of the skyscraper. His young draftsman who assisted with the design was Frank Lloyd Wright. The original home was destroyed by a fire in 1897 but was rebuilt immediately. Sullivan also designed and built homes on either side of the original house, one for himself and the other for a friend, James Charnley, a wealthy Chicago lumber merchant. Charnley later sold the home to another lumberman, Frederick Norwood. The houses Sullivan created were different from 19th-century Victorian architecture and included horizontal design, rooms that flowed into each other, natural materials and glass throughout the home. These forms later became the hallmarks of modern architecture.
