“Broadway Beauties” Package Returns in Partnership with the 1895 Moody Mansion

Galveston Historical Foundation, along with the Mary Moody Northen Endowment, are bringing back a tour favorite, with the Broadway Beauties package. This special combination ticket allows guests to tour both of the island properties with self-guided audio tours. Moody Mansion contracted with GHF to oversee online ticketing, on-site sales, and retail services. While the 1895 Moody Mansion is owned and overseen by the Mary Moody Northen Endowment, this partnership allows a wider audience to appreciate two of Galveston’s most notable Broadway residences, Moody Mansion, and the 1892 Bishop’s Palace.

Tickets are $28 per person which includes a $2 discount and are available at either of the links below.


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.


The philanthropic legacy of the Moody family of Galveston is carried on today by the Moody Foundation and the Mary Moody Northen Endowment. Both charitable foundations are major forces in health care, education, historic preservation, and the arts. The Mary Moody Northen Endowment is a charitable foundation that awards grants to support environmental, social service, educational and historical projects benefitting people and institutions in Virginia and Texas. Its main office is housed in a cottage at 2628 Broadway in Galveston, on the grounds of Moody Mansion. History Galveston businesswoman and philanthropist Mary Moody Northen established the Mary Moody Northen Endowment in 1964. Mrs. Northen was the daughter of William Lewis Moody, Jr., of Galveston, Texas. After her father died in 1954, she assumed leadership of more than 50 family enterprises and guided their growth for three decades until her death in 1986.
