The state of Texas boasts a decent number of coastal resort cities, one of them being Galveston. This beautiful city is located on the Galveston and Pelican islands and has a population of over 50,000 people who call the city home. Galveston is in Galveston County, and despite being second in terms of size, it is the county’s seat.
This picturesque resort city is named after Bernardo de Gálvez y Madrid, a Spaniard who was born in Macharaviaya in Spain. He was the Count of Gálvez. The initial European settlements on Galveston were built around 1816 by a French pirate known as Louis-Michel Aury. The settlements were built to aid the weakening Mexico in the war against Spain.
In 1825, The Port of Galveston came into being following Mexico’s independence from Spain. It served as the main port for the Texas Navy in the Texas revolution. Later on, the city was established as the capital of the Republic of Texas.
Galveston’s continued growth led to it becoming a major United States commercial base during the 19th century. It also became one of the largest ports in the country. It was the largest city in Texas until the 1900 Galveston Hurricane ruined it. The city was not able to withstand the flooding and storm that accompanied the hurricane. It is estimated that 6,000 to 12,000 people lost their lives in the hurricane. Galveston was later rebuilt, and it became a popular tourist destination as well as, unfortunately, a base for illegal gambling.
Galveston earns the bulk of its revenue from:
The University of Texas Medical Branch Campus is located in the city and has a population of over 2,500 students. Galveston also hosts six districts which are recorded in the National Register of Historic Places. These are districts that any visitor to the city would want to visit.
Galveston is also home to the American National Insurance Company which is one of the largest in the United States. The company, which offers life insurance coverage, has operations in every US state. It has also spread out to countries outside of the United States like Puerto Rico and Mexico.
