About The Strand National Historic Landmark District
The Strand Historic District is a National Historic Landmark District of mainly Victorian-era buildings. The area is a major tourist attraction for the island and is widely considered the island’s shopping and entertainment center. The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976 for its unparalleled collection of commercial Victorian architecture in Texas, and its role as the state’s major port in the 19th century.
