Airport Road

Located at the north west end of Airport road where it intersects with Copano Bay, this is a wade fishing access point to Copano Bay.

Site of Marion Packing Company

The ruins of this rendering vat mark the location of the Marion Packing Co. (spelled “Meriam” in some records), one of the dozen or more meat packing plants built in the Rockport-Fulton area in the 1860s and 1870s to process the huge herds of range cattle that roamed Texas after the Civil War.  Here beef was dried, salted, or pickled before shipping.  The by-products such as tallow, hides, horns, and bones were sent to eastern factories.  Like most of the coastal plants, Marion Packing Co. flourished until about 1880, when shipping cattle to northern markets proved more profitable.   (1976) State

Fulton Cemetery

Land for this community graveyard was set aside when the town of Fulton was platted by George Ware Fulton in 1868.  The earliest documented burial is that of a child, Louis L. I. Greenough (1868-1869).  The large number of children’s graves attests to the often harsh conditions of pioneer life.  Also interred here are European immigrant settlers, prominent local citizens, and veterans of the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam.  A brush fire in 1947 destroyed many of the early wooden markers, leaving some unmarked graves. (1989) State Historical Marker Number: 2081
