Out of the Past


SET IN STONE — The Warren Hull House, now known and the Hull Family Home and Farmstead, was built in 1810 and is the oldest stone dwelling in Erie County. This educational gem in Lancaster has links to the Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and the burning of Buffalo by the British in 1813. In one photo, a 40-foot beam can be seen extending from one end of the Hull Home’s attic to the other.

This street is soon to be graded and put in fine shape and sidewalks laid.
