Most exquisite architecture in Galveston Oct 19, 2013
Those interested in architecture should not miss the Bishop's Palace in Galveston. Home to the Gresham's family in the late 1800s, the building can be considered a marvel in terms of the detail, quality and care that was put in its construction.

If you take the guided tour, they will explain you the history of the house, from how and when it was built, stories about the family who inhabited it, how it was purchased by the Church in the early 1900's and the changes it has gone through the years.

All of the wood and ironwork is original, and if you are interested in home decoration, the tour of the house will definitively please you. The guided your is quite long and can be boring and make you feel tired if you don't have that much interest in the details of the house. If you just want to go for a quick look, I suggest you take the self guided tour.
