Historic Homes Tour

Galveston Historical Foundation opens the doors to Galveston's incredible architectural history through public tours of privately owned homes during its 47th annual Galveston Historic Homes Tour. Tours are held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. "The lineup of houses is really exciting, showcasing a range of Galveston's best residential architecture," says Dwayne Jones, Galveston Historical Foundation's executive director. "Small to large, the houses tell great stories of island life and exhibit various ways to restore and rehabilitate our great architectural assets. As we recognize our 150th anniversary, and through the support of homeowners opening up some great houses, we're looking forward to this year's tour and a number of unprecedented special events." Homes on the tour include the Bondies-Robertson House, built in 1877; the John and Cordia Sweeny Tenant House, built in 1914; and the League-Kempner House, built in 1893 and 1920.
