I Love Old Galveston

A Fun and Fascinating Project as Unique as the City Herself

From her early reign as the Queen of Cotton and one of the wealthiest cities in the nation, to the apocalyptic hurricane of 1900 that forever changed her regal trajectory and very nearly wiped her off the map, to the wild and woolly days of Prohibition when bootleg liquor and illegal gambling brought the money back to town, Galveston’s unique history forged a distinctive American city unlike any other.

Join us on a fun and fascinating journey of discovery into the rich history of a tenacious little town on a sliver of a sandbar, that Grande Dame of the Gulf we all love …
