Galveston, TX 77550
Incorporated in 1954, Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) is one of the nation’s largest local preservation organizations. Over the last 50 years, the foundation has expanded its mission to encompass community redevelopment, public education, historic preservation advocacy, maritime preservation and stewardship of historic properties. Today, GHF has over 2,000 memberships representing individuals, families, and businesses across Texas, the US and abroad and exerts a profound impact on the culture and economy of the Island.
GHF Preservation and Conservation advances the preservation and revitalization of Galveston’s historic neighborhoods, buildings, and cultural resources. We work to further GHF’s mission of preserving through research, education, outreach, and advocacy.
We encourage new construction that is sensitive to the island’s existing buildings and neighborhoods. As Galveston’s historic districts have illustrated, the preservation of our heritage has a positive economic impact. In the fall of 2012, Preservation and Conservation relocated to the historic 1940 Sears and Roebuck building located at 2228 Broadway.
