East End TX History


East End boasts a rich history as the island's first residential neighborhood. Flourishing in the mid-1800s, it became home to the city's wealthy elite who built grand Victorian mansions.

Today, the East End Historic District, a National Historic Landmark, stands as a testament to this era, offering a glimpse into Galveston's prosperous past.
