This volume tells the story of the stately Italianate Galveston
mansion known as Ashton Villa. Built in 1859, Ashton Villa stood
out in antebellum Galveston for its extensive use of new materials:
brick and cast iron. It has weathered many a storm, including the
Great Hurricane of 1900, when floodwaters invaded its first floor.
Now as a historic house museum, Ashton Villa speaks eloquently
about the lives and aspirations of an upper-class Texas family in
the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
