Fulton Mansion State Historic Site

Museum Exhibit or ProgramRising above the Aransas Bay, Fulton Mansion State Historic Site must have appeared incredible in 1877, as it does today, with its mansard roof and ornate trim. Interior gas lighting and flush-toilets were progressive for this part of Texas. Today, visitors to the restored home get a glimpse into the life of an affluent family in the late 1800s. 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.
