The Governor

Named for former Texas Governor, Richard Coke, who once used Carr Mansion as his summer home, this room was built during the initial construction of the estate.

 

 

The Carriage House

The Carriage House is just as its name suggests and was a later addition to the home, built to house a horse-drawn carriage for the owners.

 

 

The Grocer

The Grocer was named for Herman Marwitz, a Galveston businessman who owned a successful ship chandler (providing supplies for ships and their crew) and grocer business for the Galveston area.

 

 

The Merchant

This distinguished room is named after original land owner on which the estate would later be built. E. B. Nichols was a well-known banker and merchant to the Galveston and Houston area in the mid 1800's.

 

 

The Newlyweds

This gorgeous balcony suite is called The Newlyweds for John & Ida Gross, who were given the estate as a wedding gift by Ida's parents, Herman & Bertha Marwitz.

 

 

The Socialite

The Socialite is named for rich history of the era where women of prominent families had a duty to play hostess in an effort to keep up power and influence in society.

 

 

The Church Lady

We lovingly named this suite The Church Lady after Shirley, our new friend who happened to be visiting the island one day during the final reconstruction of Carr Mansion in Spring 2018.

 

 

The Preacher

This room, aptly named The Preacher, is a token to the pastor and his wife who lived upstairs in this room during the 1950's and led a church on the main floor of the estate for local Galveston residents.
