AIRPORT - GLS. The Moody mansion was once inhabited by one of Texas's most influential and affluent families, headed by W.L. Moody, Jr. The family's prominent ties reached into cotton, banking, and hotels, and their mansion in Galveston provides an excellent example of how one of Texas's foremost families lived around the turn of the 20th century. Visitors will enjoy the hand-carved décor, coffered ceilings, and stained glass as much as the Moody family possessions that still inhabit the rooms.

Only Ellis Island has welcomed more immigrants than Galveston's port, and the Texas Seaport Museum chronicles their amazing stories through displays and historical records. One of the museum's high points is the Elissa, an 1877 iron-hulled sailing ship that saw many immigrants safely into port. Another attraction is the museum's database of over 133,000 immigrant names and records, which is a veritable goldmine for genealogists looking for relatives who first set foot on American soil in Galveston.
