The city of Hudson in Summit County is recognized as the jewel of Northeast Ohio, and with good reason. Hudson has everything, from nationally recognized schools to a robust local economy. Add a wide variety of community amenities, along with local entertainment, shopping, and dining, and what you get is a city that you’ll want to live.
Hudson was first settled during the last years of the 18th century by David Hudson, for whom the city was named after. Hudson, who was a shareholder in the Connecticut Western Reserve, came all the way from Goshen, Connecticut with a party of surveyors to examine the land that would eventually become Hudston Township. On May 28, 1800, he came back with his family and lived in the area until he died in 1836.
Hudson’s original home (built in 1806) still survives to this day. Located on 318 Main Street, it is considered the oldest standing structure not only in Hudson, but in Summit County.
In 1994, the Hudson Village and the Hudson Township were merged into the city we know today. At the heart of the community is a lively downtown district, often the location of most of Hudson’s annual events.
