The George W. Fulton Mansion is located in Fulton on the Texas Gulf Coast, in the county of Aransas, in the U.S. state of Texas. It is one of the earliest Second Empire style buildings constructed in Texas and is one of the most important of the style in the Southwest United States still in existence. Colonel George Ware Fulton and Harriet Gillette Smith began building the 3.5 story structure overlooking Aransas Bay in 1874 and finished in 1877. The residence, dubbed "Oakhurst" by its owners George & Harriet, featured the most up-to-date conveniences for the time, such as indoor plumbing, central gas lighting and heating.
Felix and Gladys Boldin owned the property since the early 1960s and ran it as a tourist attraction until Felix died in 1970. Gladys sold it to the state before her death.
