Also known as:
- Moss Side (New Kent County, Virginia)
- Moss Side is a historic farm property at 8501 Virginia State Route 249 in central New Kent County, Virginia. It now consists of about 226 acres (91 ha), whose centerpiece is a two-story wood-frame I-house built about 1870. Although this type of house was once quite common, it is a well-preserved example of the style, and is accompanied by a period outbuilding that probably functioned as either a guest house, kitchen, or tenant housing. Although the property's early history is dominated by the Christian family, these buildings date to the late 19th-century ownership by Henry Meyers, who gave the property its name.The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017.
