Thanks for looking and commenting, Wanda and Gayle! There were tours of the insides of many of these buildings, but we didn't go inside, limited ourselves to the tram tour. Clearly, a lot more time could have been spent looking at these historic buildings!

Thanks for looking and commenting, Gracie! Yes, some of these magnificent old stone buildings did survive that storm. Many others survived Ike, but had marks on them to show how high the water came.

That was one of the few structures that survived the Galveston's Hurricane of 1900, that killed an estimated 8,000 people. The interiors are magnificent, too. Great shot. I hope you enjoy your Holiday and that you thawed out

Thanks, Liz; there was a little bit of everything in this town, from tacky trailers to castles and everything in between.

It DOES look rather medieval, doesn't it? The architecture was all over the place in this town, depending on who built something at what time, and what their particular predilection was.

If had not been for the foreground, I would have though it was a gingerbread house!
