The Bishop's Palace (a.k.a. Gresham House) in Galveston, Texas, USA. The house was built from 1887 to 1892 for Colonel Walter Gresham and his wife Josephine. Designed by Nicholas Clayton, the style of this #Victorian house is best described as Chateausque given the intricate combination of materials, cast iron galleries, and complex roof system. Chateausque is a derivative of the French Revival style of #architecture popularized in the latter part of the 19th century.
