Like the Baylor ( RF18) and Mathis ( RF19) houses, this one-story house, owned by James C. Fulton, a son of George W. Fulton, is a symmetrically composed, five-bay-wide, wood cottage. Two-over-two windows with floor-level sills give it a completely different sense of proportion from the Baylor House, as do the roof pitch, which incorporates attic dormer windows, and a full-width veranda in place of a porch. The capacity of vernacular building types to generate variation within the limits of repeated patterns is evident in Rockport's three oldest houses, which, in their gracefulness, imply that the community was much more genteel than its cattle-processing origins are likely to have made it.
