Heritage Park & Cultural Center
1581 N Chaparral St
Corpus Christi, TX 78401 Directions
Stroll through meandering pathways that connect 12 Victorian homes at the Heritage Park & Cultural Center. Visit the 100-year-old Galván House, the national award-winning center that provides a variety of cultural programs throughout the year, and is also the site of outdoor festivals, concerts and other activities you will want to see.
Originally, the area was known as 'Irishtown,' until severe damage from the Hurricane of 1919 swept away most of the homes from the area. The enclave of relocated houses tells the story of many well-known families who helped build and steer the city.
Take a self-guided tour and look inside the homes during operating hours of the non-profits that occupy them. Guided tours are also available during the week.
