Homes are just beautiful, such detail and craftsmanship. If you like historical things this is worth at least a drive through, Modern homes are just missing something compared to these homes.

It is incredible to believe that so many of these beautiful homes are still standing after so many destructive storms have "rolled up" huge piles of broken homes and buildings--as well as tons of sea water.

We drove through this older preserved area of mansions and large homes. Some in disrepair others restored. Reminded me of Cape May, NJ or Lewiston, DE.

We slowly drove the streets between 12th and 19th from Broadway down to Market. From the narrow shot gun house to Bishop Palace, there were many beautiful and unusual houses. Would enjoy a walking tour during a cooler part of the year.

Such beautiful homes here. Made me sad I couldn't travel back to the late 1800s to see life back then when these were new.

Beautiful homes that make you feel like you are living in the late 1800 to early 1900s. Fun to drive or walk through these neighborhood! You get to see lizards as well :)

The East End has a huge collection of beautifully restored homes. There are so many various styles of architecture that show the amazing cultural diversity of Galveston - it's mind boggling!
