Description:Tour a Victorian Castle! Galveston’s grandest and best-known building, the Bishop’s Palace is an ornate delight of colored stone, intricately carved ornaments, rare woods, stained-glass windows, bronze dragons and other sculptures, luxury materials and furnishings, and impressive fireplaces from around the world (including one lined with pure silver!). Built by lawyer Colonel Walter Gresham in 1888 and designed by Nicholas Clayton, Galveston’s premier architect, Bishop's Palace was cited by the American Institute of Architects as one of the 100 most important buildings in America.
