Galveston is a Texas port city as well as a resort city in Southeast Texas. It is on both Galveston Island as well as Pelican Island. Additionally, it is within the Houston metropolitan area. It is also on the northwestern coast of the Gulf Of Mexico. 



Galveston, originally called, “Galvez”  was named after the Spanish military and political leader in the 18th century, Bernardo de Gálvez y Madrid. He was the count of Gálvez from 1746–1786. Galveston’s first European settlements on the Galveston Island were built around 1816 by French pirate Louis-Michel Aury. It was specifically built to help the empire of Mexico to fight for independence from Spain, along with other colonies in the Western Hemisphere of the Americas in Central and South America in the 1810s and 1820s. The Port of Galveston was established in 1825 by the Congress of Mexico following its independence from Spain.
