Beautiful mansion, interesting water system (1800's engineering), knowledgeable and friendly docents to explain details about the Fulton family and the furnishings. Fun time for history buffs.

Very nice Victorian mansion. Owner was an engineer and the unusual construction is worth the $6 ticket. The servants rooms in the basement were super interesting. A nice visitors center tells the story of the family.

Must see for the beauty and history. The history of the original family and the building and operations of the home is very interesting. There are some features of this home not seen in other Texas homes of its vintage.
