Fulton (Martin House) Museum - Historical Society Programs for 2019

The Fulton (Martin House) Museum and Fulton Historical Society features regular fascinating programs typically monthly, from February through November.  Programs are presented at the Fulton (Martin House) Museum, which is located at 707 10th Avenue, on the third Sunday of each month, starting at 2:00 PM, and are free.  Light refreshments are served.   (Note: The north entrance of the museum is handicap accessible.)

The "Martin House" is a beautifully decorated historic house located at 707 10th Avenue in FultonIllinois. The Italianate style house was built in 1855, when the style was becoming popular nationally. The house features a hip roof with bracketed eaves, tall windows, and a bay window on the east side, all distinctive Italianate elements. A wraparound front porch, a Queen Anne element, was added circa 1898. A 1908 renovation of the entry hall and dining room added Eastlake elements to the former and gave the latter an Arts and Crafts design.  When it was originally built, they had an impressive view looking out over the Mississippi River.  The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 22, 2014.
