June 24 - 27, 2021
Karen Pope, PhD/Art inSight, Rowena Dasch, PhD/Executive Director of the Neill-Cochran House Museum and Barbara Newey/Art Wise have planned a four day tour to Galveston to visit meaningful historic sites and museums near and throughout Texas' remarkable Gulf Coast island city. Inspired by the NCHM Book Club's first selection, Isaac's Storm (Eric Larsen). Tour designed for 20 participants.
On the way to Galveston, we'll tour San Felipe de Austin and San Jacinto Battle Monument and Museum. We'll stay three nights at the historic Hotel Galvez, a beautiful beachside hotel and spa with modern sophistication. While in Galveston, we'll view the 1900 Storm Film, tour the Seaport Museum, Tall Ship Elissa, Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum, Bryan Museum, Bishop's Palace, Grand Opera House, and Moody Mansion. On the way back to Austin, we'll visit the Varner-Hogg Plantation State Historic Site.
