The 33rd Annual Historic Homes Tour with First Impression: An Evening Preview, a sunset tour of some of Galveston Island's most unique landmarks.  GuidryNews.com was among the guests at a wine and cheese reception at the 1929 Scottish Rite Cathedral at 2128 Church.

"It was built in 1929," said John Bostock, acting as a tour guide.  "It has been rebuilt on the site of an original building that burnt down in 1928." Listen  Download

Galveston Historical Foundation Executive Director Duane Jones was at the Masonic Temple.

"This year we've got some great houses, and the Scottish Rite Cathedral, which is the first time that it has been open to everybody," Jones said, anticipating a successful homes tour.  "I think the weather is going to be great and we will have a really good turnout.  Our events are pretty popular and we have a lot of things happening over the next week, in addition to the homes tour."
