East End, Midtown & Broadway

The Bishop’s Palace ~ Moody Mansion ~ Causeway

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.

The Bishop’s Palace ~ Moody Mansion ~

East End, Lost Bayou Silk Stocking Districts

The East End Historical District, a national historic landmark, is comprised of more than 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 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 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 the 1900 hurricane. Originally developed working class community, what remains extraordinary sampling of homes from the 1800s and early 20th century.

The Silk Stocking Historical District is roughly comprised of 14 city blocks. District is roughly bounded by 25th St. 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.

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!

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!

In 1993, The Grand was named “The Official Opera House of Texas” by the 73rd Texas Legislature. World-class entertainment fills these halls. No wonder Galveston is often referred to as the “Baby Apple”, as this area is a miniature version of New York’s Broadway theater district!

Turtles About Town

A community art project installed around Galveston since 2018, Turtles About Town was created by Turtle Island Restoration Network and Clay Cup Studios showcasing the conservation efforts of the Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle. Businesses and organizations benevolently sponsored turtles and local artists created the design, accentuation and character of each turtle. Above are three examples of fifty total turtles that are represented all around Galveston, and it is a fun and educational adventure to see them all and get to know Galveston better through them.

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.

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!

Jetties!

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!
