Galveston Architectural Heritage Tour
Galveston is truly a “Treasure Island” when it comes to our rich architectural heritage. The Island boasts beautiful examples of commercial buildings, churches, grand mansions, and simple family houses. Matt Farragher will lead guided tours showcasing these gorgeous buildings and the stories behind them. Matt will share his knowledge on Galveston’s buildings, the people who designed and built them, and also how they fit into the Island’s overall history. The tours will focus on the East End and the Strand/Mechanic National Historic Landmark Districts and should take a little over an hour to complete.   Viewing of the Hurricane Ike tree sculptures will also be included. Join us for a fun, leisurely tour of the Island’s architectural history and learn a few things about what makes Galveston so great.
