Long Description:
George T. Fulford made millions on his pharmaceutical invention of "Pink Pills for Pale People" and in doing so assured his spot in the annals of local, national and international business and political lore. His legacy to Brockville, beyond his name of course is "Fulford Place". A 20,000 square foot Edwardian Mansion built on 10 acres of land between 1899 and 1901. The Architect on the project was a man by the name of A.W. Fuller from Albany New York, but the key to this absolutely stunning piece of real estate are the grounds and these were designed by The Olmstead Brothers Firm. The site was made a National Historic Site of Canada in 1992 and the property taken over by the Ontario Heritage Trust after the death of George T Fulford III. The most important key to the trust was restoring the grounds to their former glory which they have. When you come here you'll see absolutely breathtaking views and to be honest the grounds are the best part. I often love spending time in the garden by the fountain surrounded by a few curiously odd looking mythical creatures. It's a very relaxing and gorgeous little spot and it's all due to the ingenuity of the Olmstead Brothers Firm.
