People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Hudson, Massachusetts, USA? 

Hudson, Middlesex, Massachusetts, USA
The first European settlement of the Hudson area occurred in 1699 when settler John Barnes, who had been granted an acre of the Ockookangansett Indian plantation the year before, built a gristmill on the Assabet River on land that would one day be part of Hudson. By 1701, Barnes had also built a sawmill on the river and had built a bridge across it. Over the next century, Hudson grew slowly.

Hudson was part of Marlborough and was known as Feltonville for part of that time, until its incorporation in 1866.
