The Samuel May Williams Home: The Life and Neighborhood of an Early Galveston Entrepreneur


A resource for teachers, this book deals with the house, built in the winter of 1839-1840, and the Texas pioneer who inhabited it. The two are the central focus of this thoroughly researched and well-written study of the merchant elite of Galveston — Gail Borden, Michel Menard, Thomas McKinney, and others - a generation of leaders who did much to shape their city and Texas itself.
