BACKGROUND: Fulton Mansion State Historic Site, a Texas Historical Commission property, is a grand Victorian villa located on picturesque Fulton Beach Road in the resort area of Rockport-Fulton. Built in 1877, the home features French Second Empire-style architecture and progressive luxuries of its time such as gas lighting, central heating and flush-toilets. The site tells the real story of an authentic 19th-century affluent family who lived in this exceptional mansion.
