This park was originally the site of The Galveston County Poor Farm, established in 1887 by the Commissioners Court to house and care for the county’s indigent residents. The first building was designed by Galveston architect Nicholas J. Clayton. The county closed the farm in 1913, sold off some of the land, and dedicated the remaining 78 acres as a county park in 1928. The name was changed to Walter Hall Park in 1985.
