General

When it was first explored by Europeans, the island was Karankawa Indian site. Pirate Jean Laffite established earliest settlement in 1817. The early years gave the city many firsts in Texas; the first Roman Catholic convent, first electric lights, and the first ;medical college. Disastrous Galveston storm of 1900, when the entire island was inundated during a hurricane, claimed 5,00 to 7,00 lives. A seawall was begun soon afterwards, presently 20 miles long, has proved its staying power several times.

Galveston Island offers 32 miles of beach and also is a treasure trove of things historically Texan. Details from the Visitor Centers.

many city parks, picnic areas, and recreation centers offer playground equipment, athletic fields, tennis courts, and golf courses.

Seat of Galveston County, manor port, tourist, and convention center, home of the University of Texas Medical Branch. Texas A&M University at Galveston, and Galveston College.
