We thoroughly enjoyed touring the historic home. It was built between 1899 and 1901 for a wealthy businessman, George Fulford. The home is quite grand and was finished with the finest wood and other materials of the time. It is about 20,000 square feet. We enjoyed hearing the docents describe Mr. Fulford and his family who owned the property until... More

We toured the home and thoroughly enjoyed viewing the beautiful artifacts and furnishings. We couldn't resist the delectable aromas as we entered and had a lovely lunch served on the patio overlooking the St. Lawrence River.

Beautiful home. Grew up on the legend of the Fulfords and have gone on tour several times. Amazing Brockville has so much to give to history.

What I really liked about this tour was that you could actually visualize the family living there - they have so much of the original furnishings. The tour guide was informative and friendly. The tea room served a delicious lunch (the chef produces simple but tasty fare from a very small kitchen). The menu changes periodically. We had the quiche... More

Truly enjoyed my visit. The mansion is a beautiful example of wealthy lifestyle of that era. The story of the family was captivating and yet very sad as well. I would definitely recommend this attraction! I plan to go back myself!

This home is a beautiful example of a classic mansion that had many many modern conveniences that were not common for their day. They had a dumb waiter to deliver food to the dining room, a food warmer operated by steam from the house boiler. The tour guides are volunteers that have a great deal of knowledge and admiration of... More

Fulford Place is a great place for tourists or even locals who haven't see it yet to stop in on. You learn a lot of history about the area from the tour guides. This is a mansion / museum that let's you see how the filthy rich lived "back in the day". You also learn about the relation between the... More

Five of us visited Fulford Place on a bad-weather day in August. It's a turn-of-the-20th-century mansion that was gifted to the public as a historical site. The guided tour took about an hour and the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The home and it's contents give an interesting view of a wealthy and influential Canadian family during that time.... More

We were looking for a place to go for approx. 1-2 hours while waiting for our hotel room to be ready in Brockville. Happened to pick up flyer in hotel lobby. Found it pretty easily. What a lovely house museum. They have an elevator so my husband was able to use his mobility scooter. Staff was as nice as could... More
