Moody Mansion and Museum, Galveston: 4 reviews and 8 photos
Moody Mansion is one of the great Victorian style homes located on lower Broadway near the Strand district. It was completed in 1895, and bought by the Moody family shortly after the great 1900 Galveston hurricane. The house has been a museum since the mid-1980's, when the last Moody family member moved out. The Moody family was one of the richest in Texas at the turn of the 20th century, making much of their money in the cotton industry. This house certainly shows off the family's wealth, even without stepping foot in it at all! The red and white limestone & brick, along with the arches around the front, create a very beautiful look to the entire outside of the house. The inside has over 20 rooms to be viewed, all decorated and furnished with original family woodwork, art, and furniture. The guided tour also includes a short film about the family and the early days of life in Galveston. Great for history buffs, or anyone looking for an interesting piece of Galveston's past!
