  • 1859 St. Joseph

    1859 St. Joseph's Church

    2202 Ave. K Galveston, TX 77550
    806-236-0715 Under the direction of Bishop John Odin, the first Catholic Bishop of Texas, St. Joseph's Church was built in 1859 by German immigrants to feel the need for the growing German-Speaking Catholic population of Galveston at that time. The first German Catholic Church in Texas and the oldest wooden church building in Galveston, visitors appreciate the church's simple rectangular Gothic-revival structure, square bell tower with trefoil window, and the original, elaborate hand-carved altars and altar statues inside. Plaster Stations of the Cross with German inscriptions dating back to the early 1900s line the walls, and other original furnishings include the cedar pews, the Baptismal font, and the confessional booth. The local Catholic diocese still owns the church, but it was desanctified and closed in 1968 due to its then-dwindling congregation. Shortly thereafter, the Galveston Historical Foundation came in and leased the church, recovering and reinstalling most of the original furnishings the church had sold at auction upon closing. Today the Foundation continues to maintain and work on restoring the church, opening it up to the public for several events throughout the year. Since 2010, as a unique way for the public to experience the property, the foundation has brought in musicians to perform live on occasion, with acoustic performances sounding especially good in this structure that was designed to carry sound without the aid of electric amplification.

  • 1892 Bishop

    1892 Bishop's Palace

    1302 Broadway, Galveston Galveston, TX 77550
    806-236-0715 Currently listed among the Top 100 most significant buildings in the United States by the American Institute of Architects, this huge ornate sandstone and granite Victorian-style house was built by Galveston architect Nicholas J. Clayton between 1887 and 1892 for attorney, entrepreneur, and Civil War Veteran Colonel Walter Gresham, who relocated to Galveston from Virginia after the war with his wife Josephine, with whom he later had nine children. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Galveston bought the house in 1923 to be used as the residence of Bishop Christopher E. Byrne (hence the name), with the Sacred Heart Church situated across the street. The house was opened up to the public in 1963 when the diocese offices were moved to Houston. The Galveston Historical Foundation bought the mansion in 2013 and offers daily guided basement to attic tours and self-guided audio tours to visitors; it is also currently restoring the building at a cost of $300,000. Texas singer-songwriter David Garza filmed a music video for his song “Texas Is My Hometown” while walking through Bishop's Palace, and the Foundation has recently scheduled musician Jamie Lin Wilson of the Trishas for a rare acoustic performance at the mansion; we hope to see more musicians scheduled to play the Palace in the future.

  • The 1940 Air Terminal Museum

    The 1940 Air Terminal Museum

    8325 Travelair St. Houston, TX 77061
    713-454-1940 There was a time when air travel was not a giant pain in the ass. When you went to sleek terminals that reeked of the romantic adventure of flying, where you walked out to your plane and up one of those stairway ramps past the propellers, where there wasn't a sneaker search or a Starbucks in sight. You can still get a whiff of that time at the old terminal at Hobby Airport, which sits in all its Art Deco glory off to the side of the massive operation that's there now. The museum inside isn't exactly designed for the ADD-wracked video-game crowd, but it's a charming glimpse into the past. More >>

    713-284-8250 The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston's motto is "Always fresh, always free." Located in the museum district, the CAMH is a bit like the edgier, cheaper little sibling of its neighbor the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. There's no permanent collection housed in the strange metallic parallelogram of a building, but there is a fantastic rotating roster of some of the best contemporary works in a variety of media, from the international to the regional.
