Bob Brown, UTMB’s program director for Facilities Planning, holds an honorary landmark designation from the city of Galveston in front of the Ashbel Smith Building. Old Red, as it is also known, and the Open Gates Carriage House on Broadway, two UTMB properties designed by Nicholas Clayton, were designated Galveston Landmarks as part of a city program to celebrate the 175th anniversary of Nicholas Clayton’s birthday. Both buildings, completed around 1891, are also on the National Register of Historic Places.
