Fulton Mansion

Fulton Mansion

317 N Fulton Beach Rd
Rockport, TX 78382   Directions

(361) 729-0386


Discover the history of the Fulton Mansion. This mansion was home to the prominent Fulton family in the late 1800s, and upon visiting the home you'll see that it has been restored to its original finery. The home was one of the first in the area to have modern conveniences like indoor plumbing and central gas lighting. Explore various rooms of the house and stroll through the beautiful gardens on the grounds of this historic site.

Heritage Park & Cultural Center

Heritage Park & Cultural Center

1581 N Chaparral St
Corpus Christi, TX 78401   Directions

(361) 826-3410


Stroll through meandering pathways that connect 12 Victorian homes at the Heritage Park & Cultural Center. Visit the 100-year-old Galván House, the national award-winning center that provides a variety of cultural programs throughout the year, and is also the site of outdoor festivals, concerts and other activities you will want to see.

Originally, the area was known as 'Irishtown,' until severe damage from the Hurricane of 1919 swept away most of the homes from the area. The enclave of relocated houses tells the story of many well-known families who helped build and steer the city.

Take a self-guided tour and look inside the homes during operating hours of the non-profits that occupy them. Guided tours are also available during the week.
