Here are some of the Ghost Sanctuaries you will be visiting while on the
Storm on the Strand Tour

THE RAILROAD MUSEUM

 
At its height this railroad station saw over 40,000 people a day on their way to Galveston's bars, casinos and brothels. An engineer by the name of William Watson would entertain the passing crowds by doing handstands on the cattle guard of the engines. One unfortunate day he SLIPPED and was immediately decapitated. A derby hat was still securely sitting on the head they found A MILE AWAY!

THE TREMONT HOUSE

 
SO many dignitaries, soldiers, politicians and even presidents have checked in… BUT SOME NEVER CHECKED OUT.  Crying sobs are heard on the stairwells and in the halls.  A Civil War soldier marches up and down the lobby in front of everybody to see.  A little boy plays in the hotel rumored to be the ghost of a child run over outside the front of the hotel. One helpful ghost will even unpack for you!

THE GRAND OPERA HOUSE

 
Charles F. Coghlan a famous British actor sailed to Galveston to grace the stage of The Grand Opera House.  But poor Charles died before the curtain was ever raised.  What to do with this distinguished visitor’s body?  While waiting for the answer THE GREAT STORM demolished the island and carried Charles coffin out to sea.  It floated from Galveston to Prince Albert Sound before it finally made land…ABOUT A MILE FROM WHERE CHARLES WAS GOING TO RETIRE!

THE SEALY - HUTCHINGS       BUILDING

 
Two separate buildings designed by famed architect Nicholas Williams to look like one is home to several of Galveston’s favorite ghosts. Sara, as the people of Galveston affectionately call her is often seen on the wrought iron staircase near the window where she pulled bodies out of the water… DEAD OR ALIVE.  Sara stayed on after the water receded to help the injured only to die from one of the many diseases the flood water carried.

JEAN LAFITTE THE PIRATE

 

Jean Lafitte built the first city on the island that became home to 1,000 pirates and their prostitutes. His home, Maison Rouge was surrounded by a moat for his protection. But, not even a moat can keep the many ghosts that live in his house from entering. The U.S. Navy ordered Laffite to evacuate the island and in his rage he burnt the city he built to the ground.

Legend has it he buried his treasure on the west end of the island under three oak trees. But maybe it’s not a legend! At the time of Laffite there was a place on the island know as Three Oaks, where today treasure hunters have found doubloons.  He loved his island so much he returned in 1823... after he was killed in a sea battle off the coast of Central America.
