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 event will be held April 30 - May 1 and May 7-8.
““The 2016 historic homes set yet another record. This year we feature a house never before on tour and only recently sold out of the family,” says Dwayne Jones, Galveston Historical Foundation’s Executive Director. “This East End mansion and the others on tour offer a broad look into Galveston’s history and architecture. Large, small, and everything in between. The 2016 Historic Homes Tour will give you a little bit of everything.”
Tours are held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. April 30, May 1, 7 & 8. Tickets are $25 in advance and increase to $30 beginning April 30. GHF members are eligible for specially priced $20 tickets, for member tickets please call 409-765-3405 or visit the following retail locations:
