Significance: This building was erected for Walter Gresham, a prominent historical figure of Galveston, a noted lawyer, Texas legislator and representative of the 53rd Congress. The building itself is architecturally outstanding. It is complete throughout, in original state, including most interior finish and is an example of the Romantic Revival style of architecture characteristic of the late 19th century. Nicholas Clayton, the architect, was Texas' outstanding professional during that period.
