Where the Past Meets the Future

An 80-year-old, former school campus has been transformed by the Town of Hudson into a 21st century hub for business development and artistic creation and enjoyment. The Town chose to blend the past with the present as they envisioned the future for residents and visitors. We invite you to visit HUB Station – former Hudson School – a classical structure and repurposed treasure celebrating the vitality of community through arts and business.
