ABOUT LOST RESTAURANTS OF GALVESTON’S AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY | From Gus Allen’s business savvy to Eliza Gipson’s oxtail artistry, Galveston Historical Foundation’s African American Heritage Committee has gathered together the stories and recipes that preserve this culinary history for the enjoyment and enrichment of generations, and kitchens, to come.

ABOUT THE GALVESTON HISTORIC HOMES TOUR | Galveston Historical Foundation opens the doors to Galveston’s architectural history through public tours of privately owned homes during its annual Galveston Historic Homes Tour. Large, small, and everything in between, the 2022 tour will have something for everyone! In addition to the tours, the annual event features numerous special events, allowing guests unique experiences in many of the tour homes and historic sites across the island.

ABOUT THE 1838 MENARD HOUSE | One of the founders of the City of Galveston, Michel B. Menard arrived in Texas in 1829. Seguin purchased 4,600 acres at the eastern end of Galveston Island on behalf of Menard in December 1836. With this claim, Menard formed the Galveston City Company with Samuel May Williams and other prominent Texas businessmen in 1838. Galveston was incorporated a year later. The house, built in 1838 and the oldest on the island, is in the Greek revival style.
