David Lowenberg

Hebrew Cemetery

Lowenberg was born in Wurttemberg, Germany and migrated to the United States in the mid-nineteenth century.  He served in the Confederate Army and later went into business for himself.  During the last few decades of the nineteenth century and the early part of the twentieth, he became a very wealthy figure in Norfolk.  He built the first modern office buildings in Norfolk as well as the first apartment house.  He was involved in the construction of The Monticello Hotel and the trolley line of the Norfolk and Atlantic Terminal Company.  Lowenberg died in 1909.
