most incredible house. walls are walnut and the moldings are incredible, but is quite a dark and gloomy interior.
my favorite historical house in Galveston

Built by the J. Arthur Rank organisation to serve as backdrop to cheap horror movies.

Galveston's history is quite interesting to me and my family. everything from the mob and gambling to the Houston ship channel construction.
my great uncle was a naval doctor in ww2 and lived in Texas city (mainland) for a few years assigned and awaiting reassignment/deployment.
the city has quite a few historical sites, but the bishops palace is my favorite.

yeah not much interesting there.
but it's history is shadowed by Galveston's and there are not many books or info available about the city
