Originally our town was known as Nantasket before being changed to Hull. Established in 1644, Hull was a fishing and trading town with a small population of hardworking hardy souls. As a peninsula, Hull was a very strategic town during the time of the Revolutionary War because of its proximity to Boston’s very important and busy harbor.
Fort Independence was built in 1776 to help defend the harbor from British attack. In days of old, Hull had become a favorite place to ‘summer’ for many a traveler. With its grand hotels, restaurants and frequent boats from Boston, Hull had become a world destination.
Paragon Park was a popular amusement park, with a Roller Coaster, which at one time was one of the biggest in the world. The slow growth of the 1980′s forced Paragon to be sold and converted to condominiums, now known as Horizons.
Hull used to have a population influx from summer to winter of many thousands of people. With the modernization of many homes and more year-round people, Hull now averages a population over 10,000 people.
