Ghostly legends are oral traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation. If you are a Galveston Island resident then you've heard the stories, fell victim to the haunting, and maybe even seen a ghost or two yourself. It's thick in the air on Galveston Island, a permeate imprint that defies the test of time. A loop of death, destruction, and horror that is part of the Islands atmosphere. The storm of 1900 is probably the largest of all Galveston legends, put Andrew, Katrina, and Rita together and you still wouldn't have the death count that was amounted on the small populace of this Texas barrier island.

However the storm is far from the only ledged that haunts Galveston's past. Pirates, Captains of Industry, Civil War, Great Destructive Fires, and Texas Heroes share the often less then savory past of this small Island. Below is a collection of all legends of the island we have been able to research from the locals, Rosenberg Library, and our own accounts of experiences we have shared being residents of the island ourselves.
