1882 Stewart Building

    Newer Older

    The Stewart Building at Kempner & Mechanic, Historic Strand District in Galveston, Texas. This renaissance revival building, designed by architect Eugene T. Heiner, survived the devastating 1900 storm. It's details are stunning, to say the least, and the history is also very interesting. More information about the history of this building and Stewart Title can be found here.

      Thanks! I had to crop out the light pole on the right, but was happy to have the tree on the left in the shot!

      I have not seen any reports on The Stewart Buliding since Hurricane Ike. I did, however, see on the news shortly after my power came back up that Moody Mansion and The Bishop's Palace made it through with only minor damage. That was really good to hear.
