Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Compared to my previous visits this villa is now available for special events only and not open to the public. The previous visitor center was moved to the Strand.

It was well maintained (home and landscaping) and in good condition. It was one of the first brick buildings erected in Galveston.

At the end of the garden, a historic statue commemorating The Emancipation Declaration effectivity date and the subsequent Juneteenth holiday. It was not on the original proclamation site as it was moved here.

This is a great piece of Victorian architecture that should be at the top of your list to see in the city. I really like the design and execution of the property--inside and outside. The interesting story of this property is that when the sea wall was built after the 1900 hurricane, the residents were required to raise their houses 10 feet because the engineers were raising the ground level to back up the seawall and to reduce property damage. The owners decided not to raise the brick structure (which may have been impossible at that time), but let the dirt and mud fill in the lower level of the house. It has lasted 120 years that way!

Lots of brochures and information to start us on our visit to Galveston. Don't be afraid to ask questions....they ladies were very knowlegable and eager to share. The building and area is beautiful.

This building, conveniently located beside the Galveston Visitors Center (with ample parking), is a must see for many reasons.

First, it predates the civil war and survived the battle of Galveston (1862; 1863). Also see the Hendley Building (off Strand and 20th) to see another relic from the Civil War. Some historians point to chipped capitals on the building's decorative columns as damage specially from cannon fire during the battle of January 1st, 1863.

Secondly, the building is the commemorative home of the Juneteenth proclamation made by Union General Granger. On June 19th, 1865 the general read General Order #3 wherein he stated the Emancipation Proclamation from 2 years earlier was now in full effect (the 13th Amendment was not yet ratified and Lincoln's Emmancipation Proclamation had only gone into limited effect up unto this point).

REGARDING JUNETEENTH

As fellow reviewer here Ken pointed out, Ashton Villa is not the actual site of that 1865 pronouncement (although many people, books, brochures and websites say as much). It is the ceremonial home as the original building (at Strand & 22nd) is no longer standing. A state of Texas historical plaque stands on the now empty lot at the corner of Strand and 22nd where the pronouncement in 1865 was made.

Lastly, Ashton Villa is important because it survived the great storm (hurricane) of 1900 which decimated much of the rest of Galveston island.

Ashton Villa is a rental venue now (weddings, etc.) and not open to tours... but it's gorgeous Victorian era architecture makes for a stunning photo nonetheless. Do yourself a favor a drop into the visitor center (at the old carriage house) and ask the kind staff inside all about it.

I was told that this is where The Union Officers shared the information that slavery was ended in Texas. I found out that event actually occurred at another site and building that is no longer standing.

Our Grandson was married there two weeks ago, it was a beautiful, grand and historic house that was the perfect setting for a beautiful wedding complete with a curving staircase for the bride's entrance and a lovely mantle for decorations and a floral arch, as well as gorgeous rooms with decor and mirrors for the reception. There were also bedrooms upstairs for the wedding party to dress in and a private alcove for an intimate dinner for the bride and groom before dancing and mixing with the guests.

We rented the ball room and our table was under the beautiful chandelier. The house has a nice history and well worth a tour.

This Villa is now a visitor center and the home itself only available as a rental for events. The exterior is very nice and good for those architectural buffs who are checking out historical homes in Galveston. The grounds itself are well maintained. Off to the right side of the garden is a statue commemorating the Emancipation Proclamation also known as Juneteenth.

We found parking on the street right next to the Villa. The curb was very high so watch the passenger doors when opening as our sedan just barely cleared the top.
