2021.01.16 Bishop's Palace, Galveston, TX

    The victorian style mansion was built 1886-1892 by Walter Gresham, a steel and railroad tycoon, and designed by architect Nicolas Clayton.
    The house is one of a few buildings to survive the great 1900 hurricane that destroyed almost entire Galveston Island. There are beautiful stained glass windows, elaborate carved woodwork, and impressive fireplaces. This is an interesting historic place that is worth seeing while visiting Galveston, TX.
