A History of Ashton Villa


SKU: TSHA-PRESS-21674926 Categories: , Tag:

This volume tells the story of the stately Italian-style Galveston mansion known as Ashton Villa. Built in 1859, Ashton Villa stood out in antebellum Galveston for its use of new materials: brick and cast iron. It has weathered many a storm, including the Great Hurricane of 1900, when floodwaters invaded its first floor. Today, the home is now a historic house museum. In short, Ashton Villa reveals the eloquent lifestyles of upper-class Texas families in the nineteenth century.
