Galveston is a city and island located in Galveston County, Texas, United States. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 57,247. In 1900, the island was struck by a hurricane, an event that became of one of the United States' greatest natural disasters. It is the county seat of Galveston county, and is situated on the East Texas coast.

Galveston was named after Bernardo de Galvez, an 18th century governor of Spanish Louisiana. After 1779, when Spain entered the American Revolutionary War, Galvez recruited Spaniards, Creoles, Native Americans, and African-Americans to fight against the British. In 1836, Michel B. Menard, a native of Canada, with several associates purchased 4,605 acres (19 kmē) of land for $50,000 from the Austin Colony to found a town. Menard and his associates began selling plots on April 20, 1838. In 1839, the City of Galveston adopted a charter and was incorporated by the Texas legislature.

Galveston is home to the Moody Gardens and the headquarters of the Moody National Bank, and American National Insurance. A new Schlitterbahn water park will open there in May of 2005.
