A large mansion in Fulton, Texas needs major work but still looks good from a distance.

    • Ha! I actually do have close ups with peeling paint but I am in a campground with really bad internet and I’m lucky to get even one picture in a post.

  1. Mutant Victorian-Disney….certainly makes a statement…..though not sure what that might be except possibly ‘look at me, I’m a burger bar’.
    Well spotted Mike.

    • Ha! You are a funny guy John. It may end up being a burger bar, if not firewood. If it was mine I would wonder why, and then I would rent out rooms and bill it as a spooky place. That way I get to scare kids without being arrested.

  2. I suppose these old houses had a presumptuous sort of charm, but even putting aside heating bills… I’d sure hate to be the housekeeper. These old mansions, like today’s gaudy McMansions just scream conspicuous consumption to me.

  3. It’s kind of dark and forbidding on the outside, but with all those beautiful tall windows, the rooms must be full of lovely, natural light.

  4. Interesting architecture. I thought it was tudor-style but after googling it, I realized it wasn’t it at all. Whatever it is, it has its charm. The lower part, though, looks kinda weird…like it doesn’t belong with the rest of the “look”. I wonder who’s lived in it and what their stories are.

  5. I helped paint and weather proof, as if the Texas sun understands the term, a mansion a little bit outside Tyler, TX in the mid 80’s. It was located in the heart of Tyler a Century before but fell into a state of disrepair. It was purchased by a forward think man and moved a few miles outside the town proper. I felt a great sense of honor in my little part of preserving history. Great capture Mike!

    • Thanks Jagged. Have not seen much of the Texas sun since we got down here, but I hear the summers are brutal, so I’ll stay in Colorado for that.

      • Texas Summers hold a beauty best suited for the young so your choice of residence shows much wisdom bro!
        As a side note: If you get a chance to visit the River Walk in St Antonio do so. Peace!

      • Jagged, the river-walk does hold interest for me but it is 2 1/2 hours each way so that won’t be happening on this trip.

  6. I agree it does look like the Adams Family house. Great shot!

    Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate the time you took to stop by. May your day be filled with joy and peace.
    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
