The driving principles of the 19th century coastal lifesavers - Skills, Courage, and Caring - are the foundations of the Hull Lifesaving Museum's commitment to impact individual lives for the better. We foster a community dedicated to the preservation of Boston Harbor's rich maritime heritage and lifesaving traditions through exhibits, collections, open-water rowing programs, and stewardship of our historic sites.
The Hull Lifesaving Museum (HLM) is housed in the former Point Allerton US Lifesaving Station opened in 1889 under the leadership of Joshua James who, with his crews of the Massachusetts Humane Society and US Lifesaving Service and the Revenue Cutter Service, were merged to form the US Coast Guard. Joshua James is considered a "father" of the US Coast Guard.
