5 More Hudsons You Should Know About

In a previous post, we pointed out five places that share the name “Hudson” with the amazing city of Hudson, Ohio.

Hudson Baptist Church in Hudson, Maine

Those five were only the start, though. Here are five more you may not know about – and remember, our Hudson is not named after the famous explorer Henry Hudson, like so many others are. It’s instead named after founder David Hudson.

Hudson, Kansas

This tiny town in Kansas is barely a blip on the radar, small even for the wide open grasslands of Kansas. With a population of just 129 people, you’re not likely to be taking a vacation here any time soon. One interesting tidbit, though: the town used to be called Rattlesnake.

Hudson, Maine

Maine is a fantastic place to visit during the summer, though you won’t be visiting Hudson, Maine for its thriving lobster and fishing scene. Hudson is located inland, in a sparsely populated part of the state.

It has a modest population of about 1,500 people, but it’s obviously been an attractive place to visit, as Pulitzer Prize winning writer Maxwell Anderson, author of All’s Quiet on the Western Front, Key Largo and others, used to vacation there.

Hudson, Massachusetts

It should come as no surprise that this Hudson in historic Massachusetts is itself packed with history. A city nearly 20,000 strong, it was known as a “shoe town” for a while thanks to playing host to an amazing 17 show factories.

Railroads kept the place thriving until a major fire wiped out a huge swath of the town and set it on a new course. These days it’s home to some high tech manufacturing plants, and has been home to rock stars (such as Extreme), politicians, astronauts, artists, and more.

Hudson, Michigan

Okay, this one gets a little confusing. The City of Hudson is a small town of 2,300 people, which is located inside Hudson Township, a separate and distinct town of 1,300 people. Yes, that’s a little weird. The towns are named after Dr. Daniel Hudson, the original landowner, and are easily accessible off US 127.

Hudson, New Hampshire

Another historic New England town, this community of 25,000 people is actually the ninth largest in all of New Hampshire. It’s named after the famous Henry Hudson, and today is a so-called “bedroom community” of the greater Boston suburbs.

The town’s proximity to Boston, along with good natural parks, multiple golf courses, and a race track make it a nice place to visit.

The Hudson name sure gets around, doesn’t it? We confess, we’ll always remain partial to Hudson, Ohio and the amazing people who live and work there, but a few of these other Hudsons sound worth a visit as well.
