Touring Galveston - Rosenberg Monuments & Fountains

Henry Rosenberg Statue

Rosenberg Library - 2310 Sealy St.

A near life-size bronze statue of prominent Galveston businessman and philanthrophist, Swiss immigrant Henry Rosenberg sitting in an armed chair, is in front of The Rosenberg Library. After his death in 1893, Rosenberg bequeathed more than $600,000 for a free library for the citizens of Galveston. He further allocated $30,000 in his will “for the erection of not less than ten drinking fountains for man and beast” in Galveston’s neighborhoods, among many other community, church and school projects to benefit citizens. Seventeen fountains were built; ten remain today, some in need of restoration.

Texas Heroes Monument

25th & Broadway

This 74-foot granite monument, commissioned by benefactor Henry Rosenberg in 1900, was erected at a cost of $50,000 as a gift to the State of Texas.

This landmark honors those who fought and died in the Battle of San Jacinto to win freedom for the Republic of Texas from Mexico in 1836. The top of the column features a bronze statue of “Victory” gesturing a laurel crown toward the San Jacinto Battlefield. Joining “Victory” at the base of the monument are the figures “Defiance” and “Peace,” facing east and west. Facing north and south are the heroes of Texas independence, Sam Houston and Stephen F. Austin.

31st & Seawall Blvd.

Henry Rosenberg bequeathed $30,000 in his will for the erection of “not less than ten” drinking fountains “for man and beast” in various areas around the City of Galveston. This six-foot tall stone and granite fountain, built in 1898, is located near the Seawall and 31st Street. This fountain, designed by architect

John Massey Rhind, was dedicated to the Citizens of Galveston and later restored by the city. The fountain’s sculpture features the inscription, “Gift of Henry Rosenberg.” Decorative scrolling and foliage accent the edges around the fountain.

21st & Postoffice Street

An 1893 gift from Henry Rosenberg, this stone and granite fountain is located within the heart of Galveston near The Grand 1894

Opera House. Originally located at the corner of 20th and Mechanic Street, this fountain was later refurbished and moved to 21st & Postoffice Streets. This fountain was dedicated to Lyda Kempner Quinn and Arthur William Quinn in 1995. Water in the fountain flows through the mouth of a small brass lion; a decorative fleur-de-lis adorns the top segment of the fountain’s structure.

Kempner Fountain Park

2704 Avenue O

The three-tiered Kempner Fountain is in Garten Verein Park, 2704 Avenue O. This fountain, one of Henry Rosenberg’s gifts to Galveston, was built in 1896 by Stanley Kempner, a prominent Galveston businessman. The fountain was originally illuminated at night by hundreds of lights and was home to many species of goldfish. The designer of the park and fountain is unknown but historians suggest it was created by architect Jon Moser. The Kempner Fountain stands about 25 feet by 17 feet. The octagonal Garten Verein Park Pavilion was restored in 1981 following a fire. Seventeen years later, the entire park, pavilion and fountain were refurbished.

24th & Ball Street

Built in 1898 with dedicated funds from Henry Rosenberg, this fountain was first located at 25th and The

Strand near Union Station. It was later moved and restored on the premises of the Henry Rosenberg Library. The fountain stands about 20 feet tall, and features the inscription “MDCCCXCVIII”, noting the date when construction was completed. A four-column stone and granite temple tops the fountain’s structure.

21st & Ball Street

This fountain, another gift from Henry Rosenberg, is in front of the Old Galveston County Courthouse, an area called Central Park. Sculpted by J. Massey Rhind in 1898, this fountain was later restored and moved to the east end of the park to make room for the much bigger Confederate Memorial that was installed in 1912. One interesting feature of this 15 foot tall fountain is the granite dome atop the structure, flanked by two ornamental fish sculpted upon the dome’s circular structure.

15th

& Ball Street

This unique 15-foot fountain is in the East End Historical District Association’s Robert Alderdice Park, developed as a resting place for walkers in the neighborhood. Built in 1898 with funds dedicated by Henry Rosenberg to water man and beast, this four-column light gray granite fountain was moved to the park from 6th Street and Broadway. This fountain features a hollowedout inner portion containing the fountain basin. Ornamental leaves are molded over the arches between columns.

12th & Ball Street

This 1898 fountain gift from Henry Rosenberg is in Adoue Park behind Galveston’s Henry Rosenberg Elementary School. The 15-foot tall fountain features three steps leading to the circular basin sheltered by a domed roof supported by six columns. On the south side of the canopy of this granite outdoor sculpture, the inscription “Gift of Henry Rosenberg” is prominently highlighted.

East End, Lost Bayou & Silk Stocking Districts

T H E S

The East End Historical District, a national historic landmark, is comprised of more than 50 city blocks bounded on the south by Broadway, the east by 10th St., the north by Mechanic St. and the west by 19th St.. The District is comprised mainly of homes reflecting a variety of styles and periods, the earliest being examples of Greek Revival style built during the 1850s.

Much of the Lost Bayou Historical District lies between the Gulf of Mexico and Avenue K between 16th and 21st Sts. It was once covered by a body of water known as Hitchcock’s Bayou that was “lost” when the Island was raised after the 1900 hurricane. Originally developed as a working class community, what remains is an extraordinary sampling of homes from the late 1800s and early 20th century.

The Silk Stocking Historical District is roughly comprised of 14 city blocks. The District is roughly bounded by 25th St. to the west, 23rd St. to the east, Avenue P to the south, and Avenue K to the north. This neighborhood includes some excellent examples of Queen Anne style homes.

Catch the Ferry!

Did you know you can take a free ferry ride between Galveston and the Bolivar Peninsula? (See map page 5 for Ferry location.) What an exhilarating experience to watch seagulls fly overhead or maybe a dolphin playing in the bay. Or just simply step out of your car during the ride and feel the cool breeze blowing in from the Gulf. The ferry is operated by the State of Texas and takes travelers on SH 87 between the east end of Galveston Island and the west end of Bolivar Peninsula. At least one vessel is in operation 24 hours per day and more vessels are placed into service during peak times or seasons.

The Bishop’s Palace ~ Moody Mansion ~ Causeway

TR A N D

Broadway Boulevard ~ Millionaire’s Row ~

In the late 1890s and early 1900s, Galveston was known as the “Wall Street of the Southwest”. While business was mainly conducted downtown and The Strand area, several wealthy citizens built their homes on a grand boulevard named “Broadway”. Today you’ll find several of these beautiful mansions still standing and restored to their former grandeur including Ashton Villa, the Bishop’s Palace, Moody Mansion and Open Gates.

Ashton Villa 2328 Broadway

Ashton Villa was built in 1859 by James Moreau Brown, the original owner who constructed the mansion for his family. The mansion was sold to El Mina Shrine in 1927 for the Shriner to use as offices and social events. The City of Galveston owns the mansion, which is leased to the Galveston Historical Foundation. The mansion can be rented for special events only. No tours are available.

Bishop’s Palace 1402 Broadway

Original owner Colonel Walter Gresham had this mansion built for his wife and 9 children between the years of 1887 and 1893. Designed by notable architect Nicholas Clayton. Later, the mansion served as the residence for Bishop Christopher Byrne after the diocesan offices moved from Houston to Galveston. The house is owned by the Galveston Historical Foundation and is available for self-guided tours.

For a Map of Galveston, please see pages 4-5

Moody Mansion

2618 Broadway

One of the most notable mansions is the Moody Mansion. This mansion was the home of the W. L. Moody, Jr. family. The home was purchased from the heirs of the original owners soon after the great hurricane of 1900. The house remained home for Moody family members until 1896. Today, its rooms are filled with the furnishings and personal effects of the family. Many rooms are open to the public for tours.

Open Gates

2424

Broadway

Now owned by the University of Texas

Medical Branch (UTMB), Open Gates is a campus building on the northeastern corner of 25th at Broadway. It was built by George Sealy for his wife, Magnolia, and their four children. Designed by a New York architect Stanford White, construction was overseen in 1889 by famed Galveston architect, Nicholas Clayton. The mansion is not open to the public for tours, but instead is used as a conference center for mainly events sponsored by UTMB.

While a lot of the oak trees in Galveston were destroyed by the storm surge from Hurricane Ike, instead of cutting the trees completely down... some artists decided to sculpt the tree stumps into art forms. These whimsical sculptures have replaced the majestic oaks Galveston lost. Some sculptures are tucked into gardens and nestled into side yards while others are proudly on display near the street. Touring the sculptures in the Island’s East End is an easy walk or bike ride. All of the sculptures listed below are clearly visible from the street.

Heart of Downtown

The Strand was the heart of Galveston in the late 1800s and early 1900s and was considered at that time to be the “New York of Texas”. Many buildings still remain that were built in that era featuring a large amount of Victorian architecture. Those buildings managed to survive the devastating hurricane of 1900 that claimed the lives of more than 6,000 people, and now Hurricane Ike.

Wear your walking shoes because the 70+ block historic downtown has much more to offer beyond The Strand, and it’s all within walking distance! Explore tree-lined Postoffice Street, home of The Grand 1894 Opera House and discover art galleries, boutiques, chic bars & restaurants, live theater and more. Venture along 25th Street for an eclectic mix of shops, eateries and warehouse galleries.

From the Railroad Museum on the West to Hendley Green Park and shops on the East, the Strand has something for everyone -- toys, crafts, clothes, souvenirs, beef jerky, jewelry, unique photographs, housewares and more!

While strolling the Strand, take time to visit the newest park in the area -Hendley Green Park.

The effort to design and create the park was spearheaded by the Galveston Historical Foundation and began in 2013, the park officially opened in October 2015. Hendley Green accommodates outdoor recreation and community activities, while also serving to invigorate reinvestment along the east end of the Strand.

The Great Storm of 1900

On Sept 8, 1900, a massive hurricane made landfall at Galveston. The hurricane would rate a Category 4 on today’s hurricane scale, as winds topped 150 mph and a storm surge was estimated at 13-18 feet. An estimated 3,600 buildings, roughly 2/3 of Galveston’s total, was destroyed. The property damage value ranged from $25-50 million. In 2005 dollars, this would be about $540 million to $1.1 billion, a huge per-capita toll, given Galveston’s population of just under 38,000 at the time. The greatest loss was the thousands of lives lost in this storm. To protect the city and its people, construction began in 1902 on a 17-foot high concrete seawall 3 miles in length (since expanded to 10.4 miles) along the most populated section of the Gulf beach. In addition, construction crews lifted more than 2,100 of the city’s buildings by pumping sand beneath them. This raised the city’s peak elevation to as much as 17 feet over the previous peak elevation of 8.7 feet.

Jewel of Galveston Harbor - 1877 Elissa

Elissa, one of only four pre-20th-century tall ships in the U.S., has been restored to full sailing capacity and has been named a National Historic Landmark and one of America’s Treasures by the U.S. Dept. Built in Scotland in 1877, the Elissa was a rusting hulk when she was rescued from a Greek scrap yard by the Galveston Historical Foundation in 1974. The foundation purchased the ship in 1975 and restored her at a cost of nearly $7 million, bringing a vital link to Galveston’s maritime past back to life. Hope you can view this Jewel soon!

Seawall

A World-Class Beach Street!

Seawall Blvd. A Premiere Beach Street!

Seawall Blvd. is a world class beach street where fun in the sun abounds! This is where it happens in Galveston, TX! There’s tours, there’s any kind of restaurant you’re looking for, there’s places to stay, and things to do. Awesome surf fishing abounds at 61st Street Fishing Pier, where the views of the Gulf of Mexico are awesome. Take a Duck Tour, or choose from the many restaurants up and down the boulevard for any kind of cuisine.

Seawall Facts

The Seawall was built to protect the Island from hurricanes or tropical storms after the great hurricane of 1900 devastated the Island in what has been recorded as the worst loss-of-life disaster ever encountered in the U.S. Construction began in 1902 and was completed in 1904. Since that time, the Seawall has been extended several times and can now claim a world’s record! It is now the longest running sidewalk in the world and is more than 10 miles long.

Where Fun in the Sun Abounds!

Fishing in the Gulf!

Part of the fun of visiting Galveston is to experience the joys of fishing. A great spot to cast a line is the 61st Street Fishing Pier. Located at the corner of 61st St. and Seawall Blvd., this facility stands out over the Gulf of Mexico. The pier offers bait, tackle, fishing gear, souvenirs, snacks and goodies. For a great Gulf view, check out the observation deck up top!

The Galveston beach front along Seawall Blvd. has a number of granite rock jetties that begin at the cement sea wall and extend out into the Gulf of Mexico. These jetties are a great place to take a walk and observe marine life or even cast a fishing line out into the surf. While these jetties were built for beach protective reasons, swimmers beware! Don’t swim too close to a jetty because often dangerous rip tides form near these rocks. Have fun swimming in the Gulf, but be safe!
