    sanity returns – no island in the kitchen. what a jewel box of a house. all those great original features and if it survived the 1900 hurricane, I guess you don’t have to worry about structure.
    and a weekend rental would pay the mortgage. I would stay in the pink room and rent the rest.

    Amazing. I just finished reading “Isaac’s Storm,” by Erik Larson. It tells the story of the 1900 Galveston hurricane that destroyed the town and killed thousands. Hard to believe this fantastic home survived. What a beauty!

      I have read an account of the great storm as well (I can’t remember if it was the same one). It was a truly chilling story and a miracle this house survived.

    I read “Isaacs Storm” as well. The Great Storm of 1900 was also chronicled in an earlier book that I can recommend, called “Death From the Sea”, by Herbert Mason.

    We visit Galveston, Port Aransas,lots of summers! We love the beach & we drive around looking at homes dreaming of living there! Ive seen several old homes that survived the storm & they are beauties! Talking with locals, to live in Galveston thumbs up to aaaaannneee is about 50/50 when including expense, society & of course storm hazards & possibilities.
