Mull Avenue probably received its name from the Mull family who owned a farm in the area. The original house, which still stands, is located at 73 Mull Avenue. Once, when the house was for sale, an advertisement gave this description:
“Fabulous find for the Unique buyer! Enjoy the prestige and romance that comes with a home built nearly two centuries ago.

Originally Mull Avenue was probably a short, dirt road until it was upgraded and lengthened. The earliest recording of Mull Avenue in the city records was in 1905 - 1906 record book at which time it started at West Market Street and extended to one block west of Rose.
