Frank Bell House

In 2010, the 1867 Settlement Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Districts, making it the only Reconstruction-era historic district in Galveston County. Texas Historical Markers have been placed at historic sites throughout the community. The oldest structure, the 1887 Frank Bell, Sr. and Flavilla Bell home is being restored for development as a community museum by the Texas City Parks and Recreation Department.
