We stumbled upon this section of town driving to a restaurant. The houses are really amazing. Some of them are pretty run down but others are in great shape. They really evoke an antebellum vibe.

We started at the Bishop Mansion. We went up and down the streets behind it. There were some historical homes . Some all done up some getting work done. It was a pleasure look at the past.

Have done some walking as I'm staying in the Historic East End. Been through Sacred Heart Church, Bishop's Palace, the Moody Mansion and seeing many beautifully restored older homes.

Come spend a few hours walking or biking or taking a Segway guided tour or carriage ride past stately Victorian era houses. In May there is a homes tour where private residences are open to the public. It is truly a living museum of sorts!

This is a place that you need to visit when you're in Galveston. A historical area with the victorian style houses. Some of them are not well kept but most of them are still beautiful.

We drive around the historical area. The craftsmanship building the old homes is unbelievable. It is worth taking the time to drive around slowly and enjoy the history.
