Normal Galveston Historical Fndn.
galvestonhistory A north view, from Avenue N, of the Ursuline Academy, established in 1847 by the Ursuline Sisters from New Orleans. The main building, seen here, was built in 1895 and designed by Nicholas J. Clayton. During the 1900 Storm, this building provided shelter to over 1000 people. Damaged in 1961 by Hurricane Carla, it was demolished in 1962. #tbt #galveston #galvestonhistory #nicholasclayton #texashistory #ursuline #oldphoto #academy #1900storm #hurricane 3mon

galvestonhistory #tbt Like the Menard House on 33rd and Avenue O, the Samuel May Williams house ( 3601 Avenue P) is an example of the outlying estates that were once built on large tracts of land known as the "out lots". Built by Williams in 1839, the house faces east with long galleries on the east and south sides. Secretary to Stephen F. Austin, Williams secured funding from the United States in support of the Texas Revolution in 1835-1836. After independence was won, he became one of the most successful commission merchants in Galveston. A survivor of the 1900 Storm, the house still stands. The storerooms and cistern were lost to the grade-raising that followed the great hurricane. Today, the first floor rests 3 feet above grade. This 1892 photo shows the structure at it's original level, ten feet above ground. #galveston #galvestonhistory #oldphoto #oldhouselove #preservation #historicbuilding #texashistory #stephenfaustin #texashistory #1900storm 4mon

slickrick116 "The deadliest natural disaster in U.S. history happened on this day in 1900. It is estimated that between 6,000 to 12,000 died on the night of September 8, 1900, in Galveston as a cat 4 hurricane with sustained winds of 145 mph battered the island." // I thank God that people came together and decided to rebuild. I love my city. // #galveston #galvestontx #galvestontexas #1900storm #naturaldisaster #texas #history #ushistory #hurricane 4mon

Post Office Street
Galveston, Texas.
this post at the entrance marks the high water levels of some major storms to hit the island.
hurricane Ike is at the top at over
8 feet high..
Galveston is a beautiful, battered but resolute town.
It would be beautiful 200 miles inland, but it's the constant reminders of storms past and future, that give it such character. -photo by @g_griffin_photo @ilovetexasphoto #iltp #galveston #hurricaneparty #survivor #1900storm #ike

wifeofjroc Today's #MayPhotoChallenge was about paths, and I thought what better path to post than the incredible journey my little island has taken since the #1900Storm :) #Galveston (Pic shamelessly stolen from PBS.org.) 2y

marymacktx Most of the bodies from the 1900 Storm were not buried, so this is a pretty rare sight. 3y
