Galveston Firefighters to Returned to House they Saved Today
1868 H. C. Schmidt House Oldest Home on Galveston Historic Homes Tour's Final Weekend

The crew of firefighters who saved one of Galveston's oldest homes last year from a roaring blaze returned today to the house to look at the work Galveston Historical Foundation has done to bring it back to life as a featured home on this year's Galveston Historic Homes Tour.

The H.C. Schmidt House, built in 1868, is located at 1524 Avenue K in Galveston.

The firefighters, members of Galveston Fire Department's B Shift, toured the house this morning, surveying the work that Galveston Historical Foundation has been able to do because of their  rapid response and success in saving the house from the blaze on February 8, 2008.
