  • Great place for a wedding. Large interior, stage for live music, well done landscaping and decor. I worked at a wedding there. Was impressed. Decent amount of parking. 160 guests and spots to spare.
  • This is a historic landmark. In design of a Teutonic Club; all stockholders were of German descent. Center for city’s social life, 1876-1923, complex had an octagonal dance pavilion, tennis courts, bowling and tenpin alleys, bandstand, fountains. The complex was site of Galveston’s first underground electrical conduits. When corporation was dissolved, Stanley E. (Pat) Kempner bought the property and gave it to the city of Galveston for park use. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark – 1971
