Strand Historical District

Area in Galveston

Stroll the historic Strand District to get an appreciation of the city's glory days in the late 19th century. The commercial horse-drawn carriages clip-clop over historic trolley tracks and past elaborate brick facades fronting Victorian-era buildings that now contain shops and restaurants. Informative historical markers identify buildings around the district. Look for the Grand 1894 Opera House, which is still in operation.
