Beachtown Galveston, which hosts the Coastal Living Idea House, held a celebration of the Rebirth of Galveston on Saturday.

Shirazi noted that Coastal Living had requested that he designate a non profit organization to benefit from the Idea House and he chose Galveston Historical Foundation.

"Without Historic Galveston, Galveston doesn't have much value," he said.

Galveston Historical Foundation Executive Director Dwayne Jones, who was a guest at the Beachtown event, talked to Guidry News Service about the first day of the Historic Homes Tour. Listen: RealPlayer  MP3

The Historic Homes Tour will continue next weekend.
