Faces and Places of Galveston

 Faces and Places of Galveston

Opening Friday December 1, 2023

Explore the newly renovated Trustees Hall and experience highlights of Galveston history in "Faces and Places of Galveston."

Galveston is a fascinating place, unlike any other city in Texas. Walk around the island long enough and you’ll find that every street has a story, and every local has a history they hold dear. Street signs, parks, buildings, and multiple locations are named after some of the most influential and generous people on the island, and those names continue to grow each year. Looking at its history, the variety of people, cultures, and inspirations that make up Galveston may cause you to wonder, “How did all of these people find their way to the same island?”

Faces and Places of Galveston offers snapshots of several key figures and locations in Galveston history. Some exhibit highlights include:

  • Portraits of prominent Galvestonians
  • Landscape paintings of iconic Galveston locations
  • Photographs from the Galveston and Texas History Center
  • Artifacts related to Galveston's founding, the Great Storm of 1900, and more

The exhibit is located on the 4th floor in Trustees Hall. It can be viewed during regular library hours, 9:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Monday through Saturday. No appointment needed.
