Founded in 1622, and incorporated in 1647, the first settlement in Hull was a trading post erected by refugees who were expelled from Plymouth Colony for sedition and alleged profanation of the church.
Not surprisingly, fishing was the pre-dominant early industry before the community’s long coastline and beautiful natural beaches led to its development as a popular resort area just 18 miles from Boston by car, and only 5 miles by boat.
Today’s Hull is a prized residential bedroom community with an ocean view. The three principal ‘hills’ Allerton, Strawberry, and Hull, typify Hull’s home style variety, which ranges from expensive single family homes and gracious colonials, to cottages and condominiums. Schools, government, town services and land recreation facilities are all very good. Residents have a multitude of civic and social organizations to choose from as well as a host of entertainment and dining facilities. But it is the surrounding sea – the scent of it, the sight of it, the fun of it – that makes Hull so unique.
