WHERE IN TEXAS
This historic home stands gracefully along the Texas coast in Rockport-Fulton, surrounded by live oaks and palm trees. It is noteworthy for its architectural style and its innovative heating, lighting and plumbing systems. It's the Fulton Masion, a state historic site. Many readers recognized the mansion and several have taken tours of the home, known for having a distinct architecutral style and for being the first home in the area with indoor plumbing. Reader Mary Mains of La Vernia calls it "a wonderful place to tour inside and out." Barbara Bohls of Pleasanton says it is "a very fascinating home with all the innovative hearing, lighting and plumbing systems."
