THE "KETTLE HOUSE"
Reported: 14108 San Luis Pass Rd, Galveston, TX 77554
Actual: 1410 Mirimar Drive, Galveston, Texas, USA [Approximate]
An excerpt from the book "Weird Texas: Your Travel Guide to Texas's Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets" by Wesley Treat, Heather Shades and Rob Riggs reads as follows:
"Supposedly it was erected by a gentleman who used to build storage tanks for oil companies, though his exact identity is unknown. The neighbors, some of whom were residents when the "Kettle" went up, have seen the man but know little about him."
The book can be found on Google Books and the article is on page 152. An excerpt from the book is on the Google Books tab below.
The only address we have been able to find online for the property is:
14108 San Luis Pass Rd, Galveston, TX 77554
This is not correct. A check on Google Maps using Satellite view does reveal a circular structure at this location but "Street View" clearly shows this is not the "Kettle House" as shown below.
A little scanning of the Galveston shoreline however shows that the "Kettle House" is located near the intersection of FM 3005 and Marina Blvd. We could not establish the actual address but a search for:
1410 Mirimar Drive, Galveston, Texas, USA
will get you close; from there the "Kettle House" is a little to the north east.
