Rising above the Aransas Bay and surrounded by stately live oaks, Fulton Mansion State Historic Site is located in the resort area of Rockport-Fulton. The house must have appeared incredible in 1877, as it does today, with its mansard roof and ornate trim. Interior gas lighting, flush-toilets, and other refinements were progressive and luxurious elements for this part of Texas history.
Today, visitors get a rare glimpse into the life of an affluent family in the late 1800s as they journey through the restored home, a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark and listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Learn about George Fulton’s engineering skills, take a walk through Harriet Fulton’s gardens, and hear the stories of living in a grand Victorian villa. Located behind the mansion, the Education and History Center offers interactive exhibits and a gift shop.
