For a preview of the show:
The History Tour evolved from Lee's interest in the Civil War (he is a first cousin to Robert E. Lee), and combines his study of Galveston history, with his acting talent and affection for the Island to bring you history that comes alive.
George Lee is a "BOI" (born on the island), and old enough to remember the waning days of the infamous "free state of Galveston" (when the town was wide-open, free-wheeling day and night) - a time when organized crime made anything possible... if you had the money. You'll hear about gambling, rum running, bordellos and a Vegas lifestyle on the island, before Las Vegas even existed. Galveston was actually the model for Las Vegas! You'll see and hear the ravages of the killer 1900 storm.
Our tours are flexible and children are welcome.
