Hudson is a City steeped in history and tradition, with progressive programs and services that meet the modern needs of the community. Residents take pride in Hudson’s excellent school system, tree-lined streets and quality of life that is unparalleled in the area. From the efforts to preserve the historic, Western Reserve charm of the community, to the new First & Main mixed-use retail development, designed to seamlessly blend historic Main Street with new retail stores, restaurants, a library, and town homes, right in the center of town, Hudson has earned it’s place on the National Register of Historic Places. No matter what your interest or needs, Hudson has something to offer with more than 100 independently owned, regional and national chain retail shops and restaurants. It’s no wonder that Hudson was voted one of the Top 100 Communities in 2010 and 2011 by the America’s Promise Alliance.
