The Moody Mansion

It was a pleasure to finally tour the Moody Mansion in Galveston, Texas. Its opulence cannot be understated for the time in history that it was built in 1895. The home has much history and has a total of 31 rooms. Prior to the Moody’s purchasing the $100,000 home for $20,000 after the great hurricane in 1900, it was owned by Narcissa Willis. From what I read she wanted a mansion, and her husband wanted the money distributed to their ten children upon his death. She did not abide by that, had her old home demolished, and built the mansion. It cost her dearly in my view because her ten children never talked to her again and she died a widow all alone in her dream house in 1899.
