So I like to think that i know a good amount about Galveston history. What I know most about in this genre is historic structures in the city. One structure that I've always been curious about but knew little about is Stewart's Mansion. It is at the west end of Stewart road (right before it turns south toward 3005). Well I knew that it was originally a Sealy property and was later sold to Stewart (of Stewart Title fame), but little else. I always wanted to visit the property, take pictures and give a synopsis of the place. Well someone beat me to it and i'm not so small that i can't give credit where it is due.
Look at the pictures of the pirates of which one is supposedly Jean Lafitte. Ghost legend ( which of course, i believe EVERY word of ) says that the pirates move around at night and protect the place.
Galveston Historical Foundation has had the property on its "properties at risk" list since 2004. Next time you're on the west end, drive by and you'll agree that this mysterious place needs to be saved for many others to wonder about.
