Heffron House 1899-1900: Galveston, Texas. Isaac Heffron, a native of Wales, was a cement contractor who built the railway trestle bridge to Galveston, the water works, and the first sewerage systems for Galveston and Houston. Located off the gulf coast of Texas, the late Victorian structure was completed shortly before the great 1900 storm ravaged Galveston Island. The home was undamaged, unlike most Galveston houses, the Heffron home has a strong horizontal emphasis. With its round porches and unusual columns, the house resembles a steamboat. The Heffron family occupied the house for 43 years. It now operates as a bed-and-breakfast called the Victorian Inn.
