This property is featured in Historic Overnights: Galveston. The current owners have worked closely with Texas Historical Commission staff to research the history of this home and its original owners.
Built in 1894, this L-plan Victorian Cottage in the heart of the Silk Stocking National Historic District survived the Great Storm of 1900 and was subsequently raised. Though built and originally owned by barber Adolph Helmann, the house's most notable occupant, Agnes Chapman, connects this property to a long-lost fishing destination that was destroyed and rebuilt multiple times over the course of the twentieth century.
