The Trube Castle was built about 1890 in Galveston and was owned by a Danish immigrant. It is now a bed and breakfast. It is located at 1627 Sealy, Galveston, TX 77550. Telephone 409-765-4396. Unfortunately, I could not locate a web page for it.

Attached is a photgraph of the Trube Castle, located in Galveston, TX. It is not a bed and breakfast, as mentioned on your site -- it is a private residence where my family and I live, and was constructed in 1890.

You're free to add the photo to your site if you wish.
