About Galveston

The city of Galveston, Texas, is located on Galveston Island on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. This location is appealing to its residents, and it brings many tourists to the area every year. Though the city has a population of just under 50,000 people, Galveston's location and its port make it an important American community.

The area in which Galveston now sits was first settled by native tribes hundreds of years ago. European explorers began to investigate and settle the area starting in the 1500s, but it was not until the early 1800s when permanent settlements began to spring up on the island. These settlements were actually built by pirates who controlled the island until 1821 when the U.S. Navy forced the raiders off the land. Not long after this, the port was established and the city became incorporated.

One of the most significant events in the city's history was the hurricane of 1900 that destroyed much of the port as well as the city. Prior to the destruction, the city had grown to an impressive population of over 35,000 residents, and it was the most important trading center in the state of Texas. The hurricane killed over 6,000 residents in addition to destroying the port, and it changed the city forever.

After the hurricane of 1900, the city of Galveston began to rebuild. City leaders made sure to emphasize safety from hurricanes, and they decided to diversify the city's industries so that it would not be so dependent upon its port. As a result, the city became a popular tourist destination. Today, the city continues to operate as a major tourist destination, and its port remains an integral part of the city economy. Galveston has moved on from its past tragedies to emerge as one of the most popular cities in Texas, but it has not forgotten how its heritage has been defined by the hurricane of 1900.
