Every year thousands of volunteers assist Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) with its goal to preserve and revitalize the architectural, cultural, and maritime heritage of Galveston Island. There are countless opportunities to aid GHF with this mission. From our special events to programs with Paint Pals or the 1877 Tall Ship ELISSA, GHF offers an incredible selection of worthy avenues for your volunteer time.

Whether you are able to help with the major events GHF organizes or you have the time to assist on a regular basis, a rewarding and valuable experience awaits you.

GHF is successful because of our volunteers. You, too, can be a part of an exciting organization whose foundation is based on over 134 years of devoted and caring individuals.



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.
