Ashton Villa House Museum

Hotels near Ashton Villa House Museum, Galveston, United States .

The Ashton Villa House Museum, located at 2328 Broadway in Galveston, Texas, is a typical antebellum museum with an interesting history. It is a three-story brick house with several balconies. The owner, Colonel J.M. Brown built the house in 1858. Brown had made his living in New York City and on the Erie Canal as a bricklayer and boat worker before moving to Galveston, where he earned a good deal of money in the hardware business. He became president of several area railways during the Civil War, and later went on the help found and preside over the first bank of Galveston.

Miss Bettie Brown, another old resident, is said to appear from time to time to haunt the house, and visitors have even heard her play the piano in the Gold Room. Such fantastic stories of hauntings are a central feature of the beloved Halloween “Are We Haunted?” house tours. Bettie was an accomplished painter, and many of her works are on display throughout the museum.

Tours run daily every hour, from noon to 4 pm. Admission is $7 for adults and $6 for students.

Nearby accommodations include the Beachcomber Inn or the Hawthorne Suites at The Victorian.
