     History
    The mansion was built in 1926 as a West End retreat for family of George Sealy Jr. Later, Maco Stewart, founder of Stewart Title Co., bought the 8,200-square-foot Spanish Colonial mansion as his resort home. The structure overlooks Lake Como and is in the area where pirate Jean Laffite is said to have buried his treasure. The mansion suffers from deterioration, but many original features, such as the tiled courtyard and interior murals, are still intact. Intense paranormal activity is rumored to saturate the property, but seems largely unsubstantiated.The mansion has been on Galveston Historical Foundation’s Heritage At Risk list since 2004. i believe there was a fire or multiple as several rooms had smoke/fire damage
