Walter Gresham Home - "Bishop's Place", 1887-93. Walter Gresham was an able lawyer who came to Galveston in 1866. The building is a French medieval style and abounds with towers and turrets. Delicate cast iron work decorates the porches. Constructed of pink and blue Texas granite, white limestone, and red sandstone, the home is operated as a house museum.
