We would like to add our support to our town funding the preservation of Hull’s Fort Revere Water Tower. Our hope is that the town will seek to secure the funding necessary to begin the hard work of preserving our historic water tower.
Interestingly, as a friend and I sailed out of Boston Harbor 25 years ago to relocate his boat, I took two pictures during a trip that was long before we had any idea we would live here someday. The two pictures I took that day were of Boston Light and the Fort Revere Water Tower; even as a tourist, I could perceive the historic significance of both structures.
Now having relocated to Hull in our retirement, we have learned the rich history of the old water tower and Fort Revere. We understand the need to preserve both for future generations to enjoy. Our historic water tower is truly a Hull – and a national – treasure that needs to be preserved. Know that we stand ready to help in any way possible.
