Hull Family Home & Farmstead

Relighting the Past

Join us in Raising Funds for Our Threshing Barn!

Join us this holiday season in a campaign to help us finish the threshing barn project -

An important piece to the puzzle that is the historic Hull farmstead - the home of Revolutionary War veteran Warren Hull - will soon be put in place. The reconstruction of a 200-year-old threshing barn will be completed next spring - with your help!

Now, we are embarking on a journey to restore this historic gem. We aim to create more than just a barn - we're cultivating a space for educational programming, historic interpretation, event celebrations, and 'farm-to-table' meals. Picture a vibrant hub where the echoes of the past resonate with the present, and where the community can come together to celebrate our shared history.

By contributing to this GoFundMe, you're not just funding construction; you're investing in a piece of history that will stand as a testament to our collective past. Our museum is 100% volunteer-driven, meaning that all of your contributions will pay for reconstruction efforts. And, as we are a non-profit organization, every dollar you donate is tax deductible!

Please join me in making this barn rise again. Let's build a bridge between our past and future, preserving a slice of history. Help us raise the final $25,000 to put the finishing touches on the barn at the National Register-listed Hull farmstead. Thank you for being part of this incredible journey!


Americana at Its Best

Visit the circa 1810 Hull Family Home & Farmstead, built by Warren Hull, a Revolutionary War veteran who traveled west from New England with his wife Polly and their children. 

From this site, the only fully restored stone dwelling of the early 1800's in Erie county, 200 years of history can be told – the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 & the burning of Buffalo, the opening and impact of the Erie Canal, early pioneer life, the Abolitionist movement, and much more on into the 20th century. 

Archaeological digs have revealed clues to how the family lived, worked and played, and have led to plans to reconstruct out-buildings and the farmstead. Open for scheduled events and by appointment.
