Grace Episcopal Church

Gift of Henry Rosenberg & Historical Marker

1115 36th Street, Galveston, TX (Directions)

One of over 200 historical markers on the island, this marker is located at Grace Episcopal Church founded in 1874. The marker was erected in 1967 by the Texas Historical Commission. This is also one of the Gifts of Henry Rosenberg revealed in his will after his death in 1893. Of the original seventeen Rosenberg fountains, only nine still exist. Many of these have been moved to their present sites from other locations on the island. Each fountain bears a unique design.
