Galveston: Moody Mansion


The distinguished W.L. Moody, Jr. purchased the 28,000 square-foot, four-story Moody Mansion soon after the 1900 hurricane. The stately home features rare hand-carved wood, coffered ceilings, stained glass and heirlooms from the Moody family, which established one of the great American financial empires.

Located on Broadway Street near Ashton Villa and Bishop’s Palace, this 28,000-square foot, 32-room mansion was purchased by financial magnate William Moody immediately following the 1900 storm, reportedly for “ten cents on the dollar.” The limestone and brick structure features distinct styles in each room, many of which contain hand-carved woodwork, coffered ceilings, family heirlooms, opulent furnishings, and stained glass. The mansion is open for daily tours and is often rented for reunions, weddings, and special events.
