Historic Hudson – In Person Walking Tour

Saturday, August 12, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

$20 – $30

The City of Hudson is much more than a quaint town in the Hudson River Valley. Founded by Quakers in 1785, Hudson quickly grew to a major commercial center and almost became the capital of New York State. Hudson offers the finest “Main Street” in New York and features examples of every architectural style since the late 18th century, including two of the rarest, Adam and Egyptian Revival.

Our walking tour will explore the diverse social history, architecture, and people of this Upstate urban center. Stops could include: Promenade Hill, Nantucket Houses, sites associated with the Underground Railroad, the most notorious Red Light district north of Times Square, and locations associated with Thomas Jefferson, Ma Brown, Charles Dickens, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jack “Legs” Diamond, Ada Louise Huxtable, and Lieutenant William H. Allen, who was killed by pirates.

Questions? Our dedicated Historic Hudson telephone number is: (518) 249-5994.
