The Fulton Mansion

The Fulton Mansion is one of Rockport’s most exciting historical sites. Built in 1877, this house seemed extraordinarily modern at the time with its interior gas lighting, flush-toilets, and other luxury elements. George Fulton is known for his unique engineering skills that have given this house a distinctive look while allowing it to withstand many catastrophic hurricanes.  You can take a self guided tour or an audio tour for free!

This is a great place for the whole family and there is a lot of kid friendly activities and camps. Donations are appreciated and hours are from 10 AM to 4 PM Tuesdays through Saturdays and 1 PM to 4 PM on Sundays. Keep a lookout for special exhibits mid-June through October!
