One of over 200 historical markers on the island, this marker is at the former site of the Galveston Seminary. The marker was erected in 1967 by the Texas Historical Commission.
“Built by Reverend John McCullough in 1849. Patterned after private Presbyterian schools in historic Chester County, Pennsylvania, the institution was a landmark in pioneer Texas education. Eminently suited for the purpose, the school compound occupied this half-block, upon which the county jail now stands. After five years of successful operation, death and destitution from yellow fever epidemics which prostrated Galveston forced the seminary to close.”
