About Hull, IA


The Hull area was surveyed in 1856, one decade later Webster Merrill built a log cabin in the area and became the first resident; other settlers gradually settled in the community by 1873. Several large railroads, such as the Chicago, Milwaukee & St Paul railroads reached the town site, specifically the Nelson Rombough homestead on Nov 24, 1878. Around this time the town was named Pattersonville, after John G. Patterson.

Soon after this time streets were laid out to construct a 25 block area, many of these street names still exist today, such as Main, Maple, Walnut, Chestnut and Elm.

The first hotel and several churches arrived in the town in 1884, at this time 200 people lived in the Pattersonville area. George Ireland was elected as Hull’s first mayor in 1886. It was also in this year that the town name was changed to Hull, after John A. T. Hull (John Albert Tiffin Hull), as a local vote of choice over Winland, a name the Railroad tried to implement.
