Asa Hull was born in 1870 and died in 1940. During the late 1800’s and early 1900’s grain was being cultivated on the vacant lots in our town and the milk from the dairy was being sold for $.05 a quart (as long as residents brought their own 1982 containers). Asa and his brother sold the farm in 1918 although Asa lived on the land of his, father until his death. He was widely known for his bounty to strangers and transients alike. Asa was the 3rd Mayor of San Carlos and served three consecutive terms from 1932-1940. Hull Drive is named in honor of this family.
