When I purchased the J. C. League house, it was on the Galveston Historical Foundation’s list of historic sites in Galveston County that are at risk of being lost.

There are three major criteria for consideration on the list:

  • Listed properties or resources should be locally, regionally or nationally significant.

  • It must have an identifiable threat to it’s preservation such as proposed demolition, critical damage, or significant deterioration.

  • The preservation of the site will contribute to the promotion of Galveston County’s heritage.

The “danger” in this case was severe neglect and rapid deterioration of the house.  It will be a challenge to save this amazing house but it deserves a chance to return to it's former glory.  You can follow along as I put my blood, sweat and tears - and a whole lot of money - into this project.
