This is a much see stop whenever you are in the area. The education center is also very informative and fun. Be sure and check for special events like music on the lawn in the summer.

Tour this mansion and see how early settlers lived in the 1800's. Nice gift shop and good tour guides. Beautiful view of the water from the front yard.

Visiting the Fulton mansion is a MUST when you are in Rockport. Built by George Fulton in the 1860's, it's a engineering marvel.

First to Review

The Fulton Mansion was one of the more interesting old mansions I have visited. Built between 1874 and 1877 by George Fulton, the architecture style is highly unusual in Texas (French Second Empire Style). It was also highly unusual for a house built in it's time to have such advanced mechanical systems such as gas lighting, central heating, and indoor plumbing (both hot and cold running water). The Fultons occupied the house up to 1895.
