Fulton Mansion

The Fulton Mansion State Historic Site is located in the resort area of Rockport-Fulton. The home which was built between 1874 and 1877 by George Ware Fulton, an engineer, was named "Oakhurst". The three-story French Second Empire Style home is made of plank wall construction, with a shell concrete basement, mansard roof, modern heating, ventilation, plumbing systems, and gas lighting. The Fulton family lived there until 1895.

Today, visitors can tour the restored home, getting a glimpse into the life of an affluent family in the late 1800s. Learn about George Fulton’s engineering skills, stroll through Harriet Fulton’s gardens and hear the stories of living in a grand Victorian villa.
