This home was so huge and you could tell the beauty it had in its day. Wish the 3rd floor was available to view also (Inquiring Minds, want to know all).

What a place! Absolutely gorgeous home and it is huge! They have 3 old cars that you can view that I think the family still owns. The rooms are kept preserved and very clean it really feels like your walking around in the 1900’s. There are lots of little funny cards that tell you not to touch things and it’s hilarious. There is a beautiful stained glass window on the main staircase very pretty and lots of art to look at too. 1000/10
Friend took me here on a tour of Galveston. I didn't think much of it till I started walking around. I found so many little photographic treasures in this house. There is an audio tour o. Their website. It's pretty awesome. After leaving, I googled the mansion to find out it was haunted. I love haunted locations. Maybe next time I'll be able to experience it.
