A Galveston Property Management Space Full of History
Aug 27, 2018 | By: Soar Vacation Rental Services
The sign is up and the interior is coming along on our new Galveston property management office space at 525 25th Street! Here are some pictures and background on the rich history of our space. According to local author Kathleen Maca:
Built in 1913, the space was designed by well-known Houston architect Joseph Finger and his partner, Lewis Green.
It originally housed Model Laundry, the only steam laundry in Galveston at the time.
It was among the most modern buildings of the time and featured design elements from the Art Deco movement.
In keeping with our sea turtle theme is a gorgeous rug to warm up the concrete floors in our sitting area.
Our street is such a great combo of old and new Galveston. Nearby, we have the the new cruise terminal near the The Strand, as well as the Port of Galveston, the Galveston Railroad Museum, and the old post office and courthouse, also known as the Galveston Federal Building. At Broadway and 25th sits the beautiful Texas Heroes Monument commissioned by Henry Rosenberg. On the other side of Broadway lies the Silk Stocking District, famous for being one of the most intact residential areas in the city from the late 19th and 20th centuries. At the end of 25th you will reach the Seawall and Pleasure Pier. We're extra excited that our new spot is on the parade route for most major holidays and events on the island, such as Mardi Gras!
Soar Founder Vonda Tackett and General Manager Katie McCarley enjoyed meeting local artist Ron Venable and scoring our first piece of office artwork at the Galveston Island Nature Tourism Council silent auction.
