“one of the most significant of Victorian residences in the country”

The 1892 Bishop's Palace is considered Galveston’s premier building. It’s grand and opulent and pre-dates the hurricane of 1900. The American Institute of Architects has deemed it one of the 100 most important buildings in America. One of the fireplaces is made out of silver. Admission is $10, and there are guided tours every day of the week, from 12:30-3:30.
