History in a Pecan shell

The name was in honor of a railroad official - W. F. Hull.

It became a station on the Beaumont, Sour Lake and Western Railway and a post office was established in 1908. Hull was a railroad shipping point for Daisetta and in 1918 oil was discovered and the town grew predicably. The Doucette Lumber Company opened in 1919 which provided building materials for the blossoming town.

The population of Hull was estimated to between 1,000 and 1,200 from 1920 to the late 1940s.
