We were so glad we took the time to visit the Heritage Park Cultural Center. We saw some really beautiful homes, standing since the 19th century. They were well-preserved, clean, with knowledgeable and friendly tour guides. It was great that these homes were all in one place so you didn't have to travel from one end of the city to the other.

The admission to the Galvan house was free, that was our first destination. It is truly a beautiful home, gives you a feeling of warmth and agelessness. Definitely worth a visit.

Address:
1581 N Chaparral St, Corpus Christi, TX 78401, USA

Price:
Depends on the house.
