“Let's work to keep these great treasures!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

The Fulton Mansion is just one of the many irreplaceable memories of the early days of amazing ingenuity and determination that our ancestors left for us. They stay open for us with donations, visiting revenue, and much hard work on the part of the volunteers who make this place and others available for the rest of us to see. The beauty and far reaching ideas of Mr. Fulton will amaze you. They have even left a room "unfinished" so that you can view the "bones" of the house and help you to understand why this house remains standing after many devastating hurricanes while the newer "better built" houses of today are destroyed.

“Beautiful Historic Mansion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

The Fulton Mansion, built in 1877, is a beautifuly restored 3-story home with a fascinating interior featuring ornate decorations and period furniture, interior bathrooms with running water, central heating, and gas lighting. A unique view of the family life of a cattle baron in Texas in the late 1800's. Scheduled tours by knowledgeable and friendly docents are available on the hour. A small museum and information center are located just north of the grounds and include the ticket office and starting place for the visit. Unfortunately, the exterior of this amazingly engineered building is showing its age and the mansion is scheduled to close for extensive exterior repairs this Spring. I suggest calling ahead to check on the schedule for the closing.
