The c.1810 Hull House -- the oldest stone dwelling in Erie County, NY-- is a rare piece of early American architecture in western New York. Located on Genesee Street in the Town of Lancaster, the Hull House is currently being restored by the Hull House Foundation as an educational and interpretive center for early 19th century life in the Western New York frontier. It is a rare surviving example of Federal style architecture in the Niagara Region and is purported to be the oldest substantial stone dwelling in Erie County. Nothing as substantial as this house has survived from any settler who came to our area before Warren Hull. It is an extraordinary landmark.

THE HULL HOUSE FOUNDATION
Hull House Foundation is the all-volunteer non-profit organization formed in 2006 to research, restore and operate the Hull Family Home & Farmstead site as a Living History interpretive experience on the lives of the Hull Family, representative of the earliest settlers of the Western New York region. Designated as a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization and chartered by the NYS Board of Regents, Hull House Foundation had its origins in the former Landmark Society of the Niagara Frontier, now part of Preservation Buffalo Niagara, when the Hull House was purchased in 1992 for protection and preservation.
