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 1912, this English Jacobean-style home is typical of the residential size and design of homes in the first decade of the twentieth century. Noticeably smaller than ornate homes built prior to 1900, the architectural preferences that took hold in the decade that followed the Storm of 1900 were likely influenced by the great damage incurred by even the grandest homes, as well as the trepidation of those building anew. Modest (relatively) though it may be on the outside, it's notable for several features that can be found on the inside.... remnants of home's first owner, Max Levy.
