Fulton Mansion Visitors Center to Hold Grand Opening

Fulton Mansion

Fulton Mansion State Historic Site, a Texas Historical Commission property, is located in Aransas County in the small town of Rockport, about 35 miles north of Corpus Christi. The 2.7-acre coastal site is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark and listed in the National Register of Historic Places. 

The distinctive mansion was restored in 1976-1983 and opened to visitors as a historic house museum in 1983. Today, the doors of the Fulton Mansion are still open to the public, and its library, parlor, dining room, sitting room, bedrooms and bathrooms are available for exploring, offering a rare glimpse into the posh Victorian world of a prominent South Texas family at a time when interior gas lighting and flush-toilets were progressive for this part of Texas. 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. A gift shop/exhibit room is also on the grounds.

The long-awaited grand opening of the new Fulton Mansion Visitors Center is here and it’s time to celebrate! Join us for a unique evening as we commemorate our Victorian and ranching heritage.

Festivities will include a grand opening reception and ribbon cutting with speeches by state and local officials. Guests will also be able to enjoy new exhibits, original works of art of the Fulton Mansion, and live music by Celtic band, Gravel Walk.

Date: 8/30/2012 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Cost: Free and open to the public

Location: Fulton Mansion State Historic Site
