Fulford Place: A tribute to ambition

This magnificent 20,000-square-foot mansion was built in 1899-1901 for self-made millionaire and Senator George Taylor Fulford I (1852-1905) and his family. The house was designed by noted American architect Albert W. Fuller, with landscaping design by the prestigious Olmsted Brothers firm.

Fulford Place and its collection were donated to the Ontario Heritage Trust by the Fulford family in 1991. Many items from the family’s collection are exhibited in the house just as they were over 100 years ago. The Ontario Heritage Trust’s extensive restoration of Fulford Place brings to life the glamorous lifestyle of the early 20th century’s new aristocracy: the business tycoon.

Check out below the recently installed new interpretive panels at Fulford Place!

These five panels depict important elements of the history of Fulford Place: the family, the house, their business, the gardens and their boat. Together, they allow visitors to take a step into the past and gain insight into the Fulford family and how they lived.
