Forgotten Gateway; Coming to America Through Galveston Island
From 1845 to 1924, the Port of Galveston was a major gateway for American immigration. While Ellis Island's location in New York made it a natural port for Europeans, Galveston attracted a diverse group of people from Europe, Mexico, South and Central America, and even Asia. This exhibition is the first of its kind to explore Galveston's legacy as a port of entry on a national scale. It brings to light the little known, yet rich, era of Galveston's history and importance to the growth of Texas and the American Midwest.
