Meet the Fulshears!

A Tennessee native, this Fulshear founder participated in a revolution, acquired thousands of acres of land, and started a family in the great state of Texas.

The Fulshear Historical Association is actively collecting information, articles, documentation, and oral histories that help to expand the knowledge of our great town. We look forward to making this information available soon.

If you would like to assist the FHA in this effort, please consider becoming a volunteer! We welcome everyone to participate, and encourage all residents, both past and present, to share their Fulshear stories.
