Lovers of both mid-century modern design and all forms of jazz will love a stop in at the Galvan Ballroom building. It's the home of generations of musical heritage launched in 1950 by Rafeal and Virginia Galvan and continued today by (baby of the family) Bobby Galvan. The building, which also houses Galvan Music Co. music store, has been recognized by the National Register of Historic Places and designated as a Texas Hispanic Heritage site.
