Although we’re not able to welcome our guests into the privately owned homes of Galveston, that’s not stopping us from celebrating our annual tour of the island’s rich architectural history. This online-only event featured live walkthroughs of historic homes, lectures and presentations by historians and architectural experts, and special programming.
HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT
This program is offered free to the public, but we’re hoping that you’ll consider donating the cost of a homes tour ticket ($30), or an amount of your choosing, in support of Galveston Historical Foundation. Incorporated in 1954, GHF is one of the nation’s largest local preservation organizations. Over the last 50 years, the foundation has expanded its mission to encompass community redevelopment, public education, historic preservation advocacy, maritime preservation and stewardship of historic properties.

ABOUT 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.
