THE ALTON la. DEMOCRAT, FRIDAY OCT. 25, 1929 *"% * ******* F^F% r*r* F-* n 7nr* i w***w.T^nw TW^ r* PAST, PRESENJ and FUTURE Twenty Years Ago a Historian Wrote: Hull is the metropolis of Lincoln and surrounding townships. It is a modern and up to date growing village with a fine system of water works, schools, banks and all kinds of stores, elevator, mill, hotel, etc. It has churches of several denominations; fine streets and well kept lawns and its business men have been able to hold the trade of the surrounding country. Hull affords a market for all products of the surrounding country which is in the most fertile district- in Iowa, and the enterprise of Hull's business men seconded by that of the community tributary to the town has made it a pride to its citizens and friends. Today One Might Say: Hull, with approximately 1000 inhabitants is the largest community in the northeast part of Sioux county. It has a thoroughly modern system of sewerage and waterworks, and 10 blocks of paved streets. It has six churches, a large public and high school, and is the home of the Western Academy, housed in their new $75.000 brick building. Hull is a clean town with majority of open minded and progressive citizens and merchants. Hull has most of the trade from her territory and with further efforts, her field may be extended and further cultivated. This fact is known to her merchants who are now coming forward with the hope that the next 20 years multiply the fruits of the last 20. Since the day when sturdy pioneers broke the first sod in Lincoln Township, built the first rude log cabin on section 6, together faced disaster as grass hoppers devastated a much-needed crop, and farmer-surveyors laid the first plat for Patters-onville, one spirit has pervaded--the spirit of hopefulness and faith. Though the name changed'from Pattersonville to Winland and then to Hull, one thought has been in the minds of the builders of the town, to construct a community of public spirited citizens bound together as any body having much in common. With'her eye on the horizon, Hull is not looking for nor hoping for great growth in size during the next 20 years. What she does want and what she is working for is greater loyalty from her citizens, more cooperation between her public and her merchants, and the growth of the spirit of builder.
