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.
