Founded in 1799 as part of the Connecticut Western Reserve, Hudson maintains its charm by simultaneously highlighting its historic attributes and thriving as a contemporary community. For its first 150 years, Hudson was a quiet village, but the population grew when the Ohio Turnpike opened in the 1950s; suddenly, Hudson was on the map, and the preservation of local traditions became even more important to residents. Images of Modern America: Hudson showcases these preservation efforts, including those of the downtown district—much of which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Through vintage color photographs, this collection celebrates Hudson's legacy as it progresses toward the future.
