There’s been a hotel named Tremont off and on in the city of Galveston ever since the city’s founding in 1839, and through it all, they have seen the city’s best and worst years. From the rise of Texas to the dark days of the Civil War, from the city’s boom period to the hurricane that nearly wiped Galveston clean from the map, the family of hotels called Tremont have been with the city since the beginning.
The Tremont House that currently holds place of pride as one of Galveston’s finest establishment is relatively new, having only opened in 1985, but that doesn’t make it any less a landmark. With style and opulence that hearkens back to the city’s storied history, the Tremont House that stands today is a must visit location for anyone interested in viewing the finer side of this great city.
As with any structure with a history as rich as the Tremont’s, there are tales of strange goings-on that defy explanation. With mysterious figures stalking the rooms and spirits that may well belong to denizens of the city’s dark years wandering the corridors, the Tremont House is a boon for anyone looking to take a peek into Galveston’s haunted history.
