Construction crews at UTMB recently uncovered a part of the past at the future site of the new Jennie Sealy Hospital. Excavators using heavy equipment found part of the original Galveston seawall buried under several feet of dirt at the construction site. The seawall segment is about 100 to 150 feet long. It was built in 1904 after the disastrous 1900 Storm that killed at least 8,000 people. [Note: This story was written by Jim Barrett of UTMB’s Office of Public Affairs.]
