One of over 200 historical markers on the island, this marker is at the Victorian style home of the late Frederick William Beissner. The marker was erected in 1990 by the Texas Historical Commission.
“Designed by Galveston architect William H. Roystone for local real estate agent Frederick William Beissner (1854-1905) and his wife Mary, this Victorian-era home was built in 1888. Its elaborate Eastlake details include turned posts, jigsawn porch balustrades, recurring floral motifs, corbelled chimney, cross-gabled roof capped by a widow’s walk, and varying patterns of imbricated shingles. The home remained in the Beissner family until 1913.”
