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.”
