A Visit to Galveston’s East End
We will visit Galveston's East End Historic District and tour three private houses (construction dates range from 1868 to 1890) that have not previously been open for public viewing. All three houses survived the Storm of 1900 and were part of the post-hurricane reconstruction of Galveston. A picnic lunch from the Mosquito Café will be served in the pavilion of the Gartenverein.

Please wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes that will not harm the floors of our hosts' houses.
