In Episode Seven of Galveston.com’s new video series, Artifacts. Stories., I meet George Osborne on the causeway built in 1912, where George explains the impact it had on connecting Galveston to the rest of the nation. Eleanor Barton show bronze plaques from the 1938 causeway which replaced the 1912 causeway.
