Mitchell Historic Properties is a privately owned and operated company based in Galveston Island, Texas and part of Mitchell Family Corporation based in The Woodlands, Texas.
Mitchell Historic Properties oversees Galveston properties owned by the Mitchell family. These properties include three hotels and approximately one-fourth of the buildings in the historic Strand District and Pier 21 along the harbor.
The Mitchells are committed to the overall success and revitalization of The Strand District, Pier 21 and Galveston Island. For more than 30 years, the Mitchells have invested more than $175 million in rehabilitating historic properties in The Strand National Historic Landmark District. Immediately following Hurricane Ike which struck Galveston on Sept. 13, 2008, MHP launched a massive cleanup and restoration program in downtown Galveston. Estimates by staff put the cost of disaster relief, cleanup and building renovation at more than $24 million on more than 20 buildings.
The family recently completed an $11 million renovation of the historic Hotel Galvez as part of the hotel’s centennial celebration in 2011.
The Strand Seaport, encompassing The Strand and adjacent harbor area including Pier 21, includes apartments, lofts, condos, museums, shops, galleries, hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and offices for any array of professionals largely due to the efforts of the Mitchells.
“The Mitchell family shares a deep appreciation for Galveston’s heritage, and we remain inspired by the vision of my parents. The buildings they saved speak to us as much as they did to them. My family is firmly dedicated to preserving my parents’ legacy.”
President of MHP
