A must for the kids, La King's Confectionery, features a 1920's soda fountain, serving malts, shakes, ice cream sodas, sundaes, splits, floats and your favorite fountain drinks. They proudly make and serve "Purity" ice cream, Texas' first ice cream manufacturer, since 1889 founded on Galveston Island. This place is amazing!
Galveston Historical Foundation is very active on Galveston Island as a result the island is home to the largest collection of Victorian homes in the country. Explore the beautiful Bishop Place and Sacred Heart Church on 14th and Broadway.
Next is 1859 Ashton Villa. Built by James Moreau Brown, beginning in 1859. The family occupied the house by 1861.
Mr. Brown was born in New York State on September 22, 1821. He was the youngest of 16 children. After running away from home, he was apprenticed to a brick mason. He left New York around 1838, arriving in Galveston sometime in the mid 1840s. In Galveston, he opened a hardware business and became quite prosperous. This beautiful home is located 2328 Broadway St, Galveston, TX 77550
The Moody Mansion - Of all the jewels in Galveston’s architectural crown, the Moody Mansion at 2618 Broadway, Galveston TX is arguably the shiniest of all. As one of the Top 10 wealthiest Americans at the turn of the century, W.L. Moody Jr. and his family spared no expense to make the mansion more than a home. It was a gathering place for the nation’s movers and shakers and a social spot for the family to relax in splendor. What makes the self-guided tours at the Moody Mansion unique, organizers say, is that they are narrated by Moody family members.

We hope you enjoy your stay on beautiful Galveston Island and make lasting memories!
