Facility:Ashton Villa
Description:Develop a sense of Victorian life and the escapades of the owners of Ashton Villa! Ashton Villa was built in 1858-59, the first of Galveston’s Broadway “palaces,” as well as the first brick house to be built in Texas. The artistic and eccentric Miss Bettie Brown was mistress of the manor, and her life-size paintings still adorn the showy Gold Room. When the villa was almost razed in 1970, the Galveston Historical Foundation formed to save the venerable estate. Grounds include the Heritage Visitors Center with a gift shop and information center.
