Galveston Historical Foundation opens the doors to Galveston’s architectural history through public tours of privately owned homes for the first two weekends each May. The 2016 evevent will be held May 7-8 and May 14-15.
“The annual GHF Historic homes tour is our way of welcoming guests into our historic homes and exchanging the stories of our past. Each year we feature houses that reflect our diverse architectural heritage but also relate the interesting stories of who lived here and made Galveston home” says Dwayne Jones, Galveston Historical Foundation’s Executive Director. “The tour is a vital part of our community and brings visitors from around the country who love Galveston’s architecture. Many visitors come back to vacation or purchase houses that further the preservation of our island.”
