East End Historic District house description

GALVESTON HISTORICAL FOUNDATION 2009 POST IKE RECOVERY RESTORATION AWARD WINNER!
ONE OF THREE HOMES FEATURED IN THE NOVEMBER 2010 ISSUE OF THE GALVESTON MONTHLY MAGAZINE



This Beautifully Restored Home located In The Heart Of The Lost Bayou Historic District Is Available For Your Vacation, Weekend Getaway or Special Occasion Enjoyment!

Built in 1886 By Mr. Thomas Hawley, This Historic 1900 Storm Survivor Home Is Located Just Seven Blocks Behind The Historic Galvez Hotel On The Seawall And Seven Blocks To The Strand.

This is not a bunkhouse. The home was furnished to provide our guests with the experience of a family in A Bygone Era. Please scroll down to see the tastefully decorated rooms. Although the house has been updated with modern amenities, all guests have commented on the tranquil atmosphere that exists when they walk thru the door.
