    Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) was formed as the Galveston Historical Society in 1871 and merged with a new organization formed in 1954 as a non-profit entity devoted to historic preservation and history in Galveston County. Over the last sixty years, GHF has expanded its mission to encompass community redevelopment, historic preservation advocacy, maritime preservation, coastal resiliency and stewardship of historic properties. GHF embraces a broader vision of history and architecture that encompasses advancements in environmental and natural sciences and their intersection with historic buildings and coastal life and conceives of history as an engaging story of individual lives and experiences on Galveston Island from the 19th century to the present day.

    Love alveston, have been vacationing there since I was 5yrs old, I’m now 71. My mother, a single parent would save all year to take my brother and I for a weeks stay. After my brother went to the service mom and U went a couple if times. After I divorced and had my daughter, it was her , mom and I who went. My brother and mother both passes some years ago. I had another girl by my second marriage. About 12 years ago I started the tradition with my two girls, we go every year, stay at the same hotel. We see something new every year. That being said we have never gone to the homes tour, so sad. I call Galveston my second home and wish I had money for a beach house there, maybe one day.This is such a nice thing you are doing giving someone the opportunity to see these homes not only from the outside but inside. The homes are so beautiful but then again I love all the island homes, no city like it. Thank you and I’m sure that someone will be very excited. Blessings
