All’s still well in the city of Hull

HULL, Ga. – It’s so small that at one point in 2003, the only city council members were the mayor and his wife.

After an election to replace the open seats, the five-member council included two married couples. Even the organizer of the parade for the city’s annual festival doesn’t live there.

But the residents of Hull, a small city of about 150 on the Madison-Clarke County line, know their identity.

The city, celebrating its centennial this year, will honor its past during the Seventh Annual Hull Spring Festival with a parade, music and a tribute to the city’s past mayors, including Paul Murray, who once owned a store in town and served as the city’s first mayor from 1930-38. The May 28 festival will be from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
