My son and I went to the Bishops Palace during our spring break vacation. The house is an architectural wonder. No expense was spared when this home was built and anyone who appreciates fine craftsmanship will enjoy their visit. My only complaint was with an older gentleman who was acting as a docent. This man wasn't content unless he was griping at some poor unsuspecting guest. He chewed out some poor family because they didn't stomp hard enough on the entry hallway carpeting to get any dust particles off of their feet. I believe the man had some word of complaint to every single person I saw making the tour. I think the Galveston Historical Foundation would be well served by spending a few bucks and getting this man some basic training in people skills. The house was magnificent-the crotchety host ruined the experience.
