22 November 2009 Hudson

Hudson is steeped in history. It's also one of the most attractive local towns. We spent the afternoon walking around town to find a few multis and enjoying the sights. Hudson was a home of John Brown and the town where he gave his first anti-slavery speech. The building below is the Town Hall and the former site of the Hudson Congregational Church where Brown gave that speech.

Hudson was also one of the stops for President Lincoln's Inaugural Train. 6,000 people crowded into little Hudson to greet the President-elect as he made his way to Buffalo and then on to Washington.

The clock tower mouse is getting ready for Christmas.

Roses at the gazebo which was decorated for the holidays tells a lot about the mild weather we have had.
