1859 Ashton Villa reviews
Lots of brochures and information to start us on our visit to Galveston. Don't be afraid to ask questions....they ladies were very knowlegable and eager to share. The building and area is beautiful. more »
This building, conveniently located beside the Galveston Visitors Center (with ample parking), is a must see for many reasons. First, it predates the civil war and survived the battle of Galveston..... more »
Saw the building from the outside during an evening ghost tour, which was put on quite well by Brittany. The history of the Villa, the people who lived at there at the time, and all of the stories behind this fantastic home made the walk and the information very intriguing to my wife and I. It holds a place in history about the emancipation proclamation, the civil war, and various hurricanes where water marks are seen on the outside of the home. An adjacent botanical garden is quite unique as well. I would suggest a visit if you're in the area and would like to learn about Galveston history.
I love the place! To bad they don't used it as museum no more. The only way you can go is if is someone having a social event there that you know. The way I find out about this place was because they did the Maritime ball there. It is really nice for any event.
