Where you’ll be

Galveston, Texas, United States

The East End Historical District, covering 50 city blocks, has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1976 and has been designated a National Historic Landmark.

Take a few minutes to walk the tree lined streets of the District and experience the charms of Galveston's "Gilded Age" of charm. Hear the clip-clop of a horse drawn carriage and note the architectural details of the fine homes...a towering pillar, shadowed silhouettes of ornate carvings, a splash of stained glass in a window, welcoming porches or a bit of wrought iron fencing.

The architecture of the East End Historical District reflects a variety of styles and periods, the earliest being examples of Greek Revival style built during the 1850's. Early residents represented an economic and social cross-section of the community, also expressed in the dwellings which range from small, simple cottages to large, elaborate houses.

Besides its lovely homes, the area offers other advantages for it's residents; close proximity to Galveston's business district, University of Texas Medical Branch, and the Historic Strand District. In addition, it's within walking distance of the Gulf!
