Lucas Terrace is one of the most unique structures on Galveston Island. The opportunity to see inside this amazing building drew people from as far away as Canada when it was placed on the Galveston Historical Foundation home tour as a work in progress in May of 2014. Constructed by an elderly brick mason using rubble left from the great 1900 hurricane; the building, ravaged by time and neglect, has gone through two major phases of renovations. Nine small apartments have become three. There are now two grand living spaces, one charming ground floor unit and two carriage houses begging for help. With a design that cannot be categorized, the feel is more European than anything due to the courtyard and interesting cast concrete façade. Step into another world and explore on your own the detailed history and restoration sections or better yet, come spend a week in this one of a kind place and fall in love with island life.
