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.

  • Members have free admission to Bishop’s Palace and Pier 21 and a discount on Harbor Tours. How can I take advantage of free admission or a discount when the only option seems to be to buy tickets?

    • Jill, member benefits can be honored at any location when you arrive. Our frontline staff will be happy to assist.
