Haunted Travels
Galveston, Texas
The Hotel Galvez and Spa


   September 1900, a Category 4 hurricane with winds in excess of 130 mph slams into Galveston, killing more than 6,000 people. Bodies had to be buried at sea...often times only to return awash along the shore. In 1911, a hotel was built on the seawall by local businessmen to help hoist Galveston out of the shallows. The Hotel Galvez has had many a prominent guest, and many have yet to check out.
   In this episode, Matt and Clinton discuss the history of the city, the Gulf of Mexico and the pirate and island traditions that have contributed to it's rich and violent history. We hope you enjoy this tale of haunted travel, and look forward to bring you more in the coming weeks.
