Hulls Cove High School, presently known as the Hulls Cove School House, was entered onto the National Register of Historic Places on March 25, 1999 for its local architectural significance . The school house’s history parallels both Mount Desert Island’s growth and that growth’s conclusion.
Hulls Cove High School shows both the popular shingle style and colonial-revival style of architecture and was constructed in 1909 after being designed by the architectural firm, Andrews, Jaques, and Rantoul . This Boston firm designed many grand cottages in the Bar Harbor area during the cottage era, including “La Rochelle” and “Nannau”.
The Hulls Cove High School is a reminder of the area’s growth into the twentieth-century and that growth’s apparent conclusion. The school was built to replace one donated by a local resident, Captain Jonathan Steven, which had become too small for the growing number of students in the Hulls Cove school district . As Bar Harbor felt the dulling effects of the economy, wartime, and the fire of 1947 , the Hulls Cove High School was re-purposed from a school to a community center during the 1940s.
