Wednesday, October 15 at 7pm Galveston's Historic Downtown and Strand District - Author Denise Alexander will present information found in her 2010 book published by Arcadia Publishing. The Strand, known as the Wall Street of the Southwest, contains a significant collection of 19th-century buildings. Long the center of Galveston's business community, its architecture is a reminder of this historic port city. The National Historic Landmark District includes buildings classified as Greek Revival, Italianate, and Victorian style--sometimes with traces of vernacular building traditions that date to the 1850s. Historic images found within this book illustrate the development of the Strand and surrounding streets, including Mechanic, Market, and Postoffice.  Denise Alexander is Director of Heritage Programs for the Galveston Historical Foundation, one of the nation's largest local preservation organizations.
