Fulton Mansion, Rockport

This is Fulton Mansion State Historic Site in the seaside town of Rockport, Texas, halfway between Louisiana and Mexico. It was wickedly hot the day we visited and it provided succor from the blazing sun. Inside was the most marvelous surprise – an incredibly interesting museum. When we approached it, I couldn’t help thinking it would make a fabulous Halloween House on a dark and stormy day. Wednesday Addams would feel so at home in my Photoscaped version below. I loved the Netflix series about Wednesday – I felt we bonded on a Greta Garbo level. We both had colonial ancestors named Addams/Adams. Mine was Nathanial Adams who was born in Ipswich, Massachusetts in 1647. Next post will be about beautiful Fulton Mansion and eventually one on my Adams family.

  1. Mansion does look like a setting for a horror. Although I thought more Rocky Horror and Time Warp🀣 my favourite.
    Looks lovely. Who lives/lived there?
    Love Anne x

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed visiting Fulton Mansion State Historic Site and the museum inside, especially in the hot weather. Your mention of the Netflix series and your colonial ancestor named Adams/Adams adds a personal touch to the post, which is nice to read.
