Fulford Place

Search Brockville Ontario

Senator George Taylor Fulford made millions from Pink Pills for Pale People, a patent medicine he manufactured in Brockville and sold around the world. Fulford recognized the commercial potential of the readership developed by mass-circulation newspapers and built his business on saturation print advertising. He constructed Fulford Place, a 20,000-square-foot Edwardian mansion between 1899 and 1901. The original grounds were designed by Frederick Olmsted of the Olmsted landscaping firm, which also designed Central Park in New York City. Original tapestries, paintings, statuary and ceramics collected on the Fulfords world travels are on display throughout the period rooms and are featured in special exhibits. 45-minute guided tours of the mansion are available on request.
