Welcome to HullFamilyHome.com
This historic site tells the story of the earliest years of western New York. How we grew and developed, and about who we are as a community. The Hull House harbors the story of the multifaceted cultural heritage of the Niagara Frontier. It is the story of the early settlement of Western New York, the westward migration of Americans and the Erie Canal. Here, you will find links to the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and consequently, to the tragic burning of Buffalo by the British in 1813. It is an account of early pioneer farm life and agriculture, and the saga of Warren, Polly and the 12 Hull children – on into the American Civil War. Such a historic home deserves to be preserved, interpreted, and celebrated for its own sake and for all the residents of our community and across the state.
Join us Saturday, November 18th, 2017 at the Twentieth Century Club for Our Annual Fundraiser. Catered hors d'oeuvres, Live Entertainment, Live Auction and optional Creative Period Dress. Tickets are available online. Please see our Events page for more information.
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.
