Woodhull is an unincorporated community located in the town of Lamartine, Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, United States.[1]

Location[edit]

Woodhull is located at the junction of County Road Y and Forest Ave. Our Risen Savior Catholic Church is located on the south eastern corner of the intersection.[2] There is one bar, and a few houses throughout the remainder of the community.

History[edit]

A post office called Woodhull was established in 1864, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1904.[3] The community was named for Nathaniel Woodhull, a military general in the American Revolutionary War[4]or possibly for John Woodhull, the deputy postmaster at Fond du Lac, Wisconsin at the time.[5]
