The German Cottage

Independence Trail Region

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 1875, this historically working-class property was originally a two-room raised clapboard cottage with a front porch, a shingle roof and brick flue. (Records indicate that the second bedroom and bathroom were added much later.) In addition, next door to this cottage was once a livery stable where owners could rent space to have their horses and mules housed and cared for.
