1890 Trube Castle

Built by J.C. and Verona Trube in 1890, the Trube Castle was fashioned after a Danish Castle.


It is a prominent Galveston landmark often described as the most unusual building in a city of unusual buildings because of its architecturally imaginative design.


The 21-room castle-- 7000 square-feet in all -- stands as a testament to the skill of architect Alfred Muller to combine gothic style and the “gay nineties” exuberance that epitomized Galveston’s Victorian-era building boom.
