Homes on Tour & Special Events

The 41st annual Galveston Historic Homes Tour opens the doors to numerous, privately owned, historic island homes May 2-3 and May 9-10, 2015. This year's tour also hosts numerous special events and spotlights new island construction with specially selected additional homes both weekends.

"The 2015 Historic Homes Tour is one of our strongest set of houses and properties in a number of years," says Dwayne Jones, Galveston Historical Foundation's Executive Director. "The range of dates and architectural styles provide an excellent overview of Galveston's architectural history. It's a "not to be missed" architectural tour."
