 A History of the Hotel Galvez

Come walk the timeless halls of the Hotel Galvez. No expense was spared in the creation of this beautiful statement of Galveston’s resilience, which stands as the only historic beachfront hotel in the state of Texas. Perched on the city’s famed seawall, the building has weathered a century of hurricanes and even “served” in the U.S. Coast Guard during World War II. Presidents, beauty pageant contestants, gamblers, movie stars, military heroes, newsmen and countless other guests have gazed out at the Gulf through its gracefully arched windows. Kathleen Maca recounts the legends and shares the secrets of this extraordinary hotel.

Copies of this title and her previous books are  available to purchase at our store.
