This historic brick house was built in the late 1850s by Wilson Fulton, a Stokes County tanner and merchant. Located in the Danbury Historic District and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 150-plus year-old house is one of the oldest brick structures still existing in Stokes County.
The Stokes County Historical Society owns the house and has completed its restoration. The house serves as a local and regional historical museum.
The existence of a museum in Stokes County promotes historical interest and preservation by providing future generations an opportunity to learn about the past. It conveys the message to our children that the people of Stokes County care about their history, and that they care about preserving their heritage.
