Galveston Historical Foundation



The work of Galveston Historical Foundation has earned the foundation recognition by prominent state and national organizations. Among the recognized efforts are the redevelopment of The Strand; the rescue and restoration of the 1877 iron sailing vessel the Elissa; the revitalization of historic residential neighborhoods and creation of historic districts; and the conception of signature events including Dickens on The Strand and the Galveston Historic Homes Tour. GHF has twice received the National Trust for Historic Preservation's prestigious Honor Award. In 1991, our organization was the first recipient of the Governor's Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation, and in 1995, received the National Trust's first ever award for organizational excellence.
