The Galveston County Courthouse is located at 722 21st Street, Galveston, TX 77550; phone: 409-762-8621.

The county was established in 1838 when Texas was still a Republic. A hurricane in 1900 wreaked havoc across the county, killing perhaps 6,000 on Galveston Island alone. Texas City boomed beginning in 1901 as oil pipelines and refineries were built.
