Fulshear: Way of Life, Well Preserved

In 1824, Churchill Fulshear, the town’s namesake and one of Stephen F. Austin’s original Old Three Hundred, established an agricultural community here. Cotton and flour were king until 1888 when Churchill’s son, also named Churchill, granted right-of-way to the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railway. The population subsequently boomed to 250 and the town was officially laid out, adding 11 stores, three saloons, a post office, a school and a hotel by 1900. Over the next century, the city had managed to retain its small-town character. Since formally incorporating in the early 1980s, Fulshear has grown to more than 1,800 people and remains a center for locally produced rice, cotton, soybeans, corn, poultry, pecans and cattle.

A Sure Sense of Home

Fulbrook is as much a state of mind as it is a place. Classic rural designs, constructions of native stone, wide Texas verandas, generous windows and old-fashioned rural mailboxes are a few of the charming touches seen throughout the neighborhood. Strict architectural guidelines and deed restrictions are upheld to preserve the character and construction of homes, prevent lighting glare and pollution, and protect the residents’ lifestyle for today and tomorrow.
