The Hull House

Hull House

The Hull House, built in 1810, is the oldest home in all of the Niagara Region, built by a Revolutionary War veteran Warren Hull. The Hull House is the oldest surviving stone dwelling in Erie County and was used as a place of refuge for citizens of Buffalo fleeing the village as it was being burned by the British in December of 1813.
