1. John and Eliza Hertford House Marker
Inscription.  John and Eliza Hertford bought three lots at this site in 1867 and built this house by 1869, the year of John's death. Eliza and her children continued to reside here until 1878. This house, originally a Greek revival-influenced design, was later modified with Victorian features, including decorative bargeboards and jigsawn porch details. The proportion and detailing of the front-facing gable are distinctive features in Galveston architecture.
