Regarding William Bull House. Excerpt from the National Register nomination:
This fine Greek Revival house was built c. 1859 by William Bull, the son-in-law of Joseph Abell, the builder of the Abell House...The residence is the only surviving Greek Revival structure in Middletown, and is one of the few one-story plans in Jefferson County. It has essentially remained unaltered.
