Rosenberg Monument Tour

One of the founding fathers of Galveston, Henry Rosenberg, left a mark and his legacy on the City of Galveston by bequeathing monies to establish a library, monuments, parks, and drinking fountains in his memory. This tour takes nine locations into account attributed to Mr. Rosenberg’s generosity. A statue in his honor can be seen in front of the library that he helped establish at 2310 Sealy St., the Texas Heroes monument at 25th and Broadway was the result of a Rosenberg

monetary gift as was several drinking fountains that he designated to be used “for man and beast” around the city. These include one at 31st St. at Seawall Blvd., 21st

St. at Postoffice St., Kempner Fountain Park at 2704 Avenue O, another one at 24th St. and Ball St., another one at 21st St. and Ball St., another one at 15th St. at Ball St., and a final one at 12th St. at Ball St. Thank you, Mr. Rosenberg!
