Historic homes come in all shapes and sizes and beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 13, guests will be able to view a special selection of tiny historic homes on Galveston Historical Foundations special tour. Held in conjunction with the 43rd annual Galveston Historic Homes Tour, this tour will offer a specially selected group of tiny historic homes with special food and craft beer pairings, courtesy of Saint Arnold Brewing Company, at each stop. Tickets are $50 per person and spaces are limited.
“There is an extra level of design and planning that goes into making a ‘tiny house’ a living space,” states GHF Executive Director, Dwayne Jones. “Many of the island’s small houses are particularly well suited for tiny home projects. This tour offers for the first time an inside view of some projects from around the island. It’s a great opportunity to enjoy a hidden treat and become inspired for your own project.”
Ticket holders are welcome to start their tour at any of the following locations.
- 811 Broadway (also featured on the main Historic Homes Tour)
- 1207 & 1209 15th Street
- 1305 & 1307 M 1/2
