“one of the most significant of Victorian residences in the country”
Built of stone and steel for the railroad magnate Walter Gresham and his family, this famous house was designed by Nicholas Clayton, Galveston’s premier Victorian-era architect. The Bishop’s Palace is recognized as one of America’s finest examples of Victorian exuberance and Gilded-Age extravagance.
The 1892 Bishop's Palace is considered Galveston’s premier building. It’s grand and opulent and pre-dates the hurricane of 1900. The American Institute of Architects has deemed it one of the 100 most important buildings in America. One of the fireplaces is made out of silver. Admission is $10, and there are guided tours every day of the week, from 12:30-3:30.
