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.
This 1854 property once abutted the 1868 construction of former Mayor Charles W. Hurley's Greek Revival Southern town house and was incorporated into the property as a west wing. In 1910, the Hurley house was rebuilt and the original west wing was relocated to the rear of the lot and used as a tenant property by the Scrimgeour family, where the property stands today.
