Galveston County is a county located in the U.S. state of Texas within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area. As of the 2007 U.S. Census estimate, the population was 283,987. Its county seat is Galveston. After Hurricane Ike extensively damaged the courthouse and jail in September 2008, the decision was made to temporarily move the county seat and county offices to the mainland communities of Texas City and League City, while repairs were being made. League City is the largest city in Galveston County in terms of population; between 2000 and 2005 it surpassed Galveston as the county's largest city. (from wikipedia)
