The Bishops Palace also called Gresham"s castle, is a Victorian-style house. It is located on Broadway and 14th Street in the East End of the Historic District of Galveston Texas. The american institution of architects says that the home is the 100 most interesting buildings in the United States. The library of congress classified it as one of the fourteen most representative Victorian structures in the nation.
The Gresham mansion is made all of stone, and is sturdy enough to stand the great hurricane of 1900. The Greshams welcomed hundreds of survivors of the hurricane into their home.
The house was built between 1887 and 1893 by Galveston architect Nicholas J. Clayton. In 1923 the Roman Catholic Diocese of galveston purchased the house and, situated across the street from the Sacred Heart Church, it served as the residence for Bishop Christopher E. Byrne.
The Galveston Historical Foundation provides self-guided tours of the house daily. Funding from the tours go to help the preservation and restoration of the house.
