The Museum is Open!!


The new Hudson Museum and Tourist Information Centre opened its doors to coincide with the Hudson Street Fair on August 1 2009.  By means of old photos, artifacts and video screenings. the Museum presents a lively overview of our Town's history.

It will also function as a Tourist Information Centre where visitors will be able to  find directions to our wonderful hiking trails, Sandy Beach, the Greenwood Centre for Living History and other interesting local attractions. We hope in time to accumulate more artifacts and historical information about Hudson and the immediate surrounding communities of St Lazare, Vaudreuil-Dorion, Rigaud and Ste Marthe to make this small museum an integral addition to this amazing community. 

If you have any artifacts that you would be willing to donate or loan to the Museum for its display, please contact us via this link.

Please note that we have not yet established our regular opening hours, so please refer back to this site for more information.

The new website

Welcome to the newly redesigned Hudson Historical Society website. As you can see we've almost completely overhauled the old site. We hope that this new website will become a regular stop for you while you cruise down the information superhighway.

As you might have noticed, there is a login dialog on the right side of the screen. By creating a new account, you will have the opportunity to participate in (and initiate) forum discussions. We have also given the ability to maintain your own blog (or weblog). Think of it as an electronic diary or journal. Here you will be able to write about anything that interests you, although we do hope it will have a historical slant.

In an effort to help you to use the new features of the website, we have put together a short tutorial that you can download (see the link below this message). It is a PDF file, so you might need to download the Acrobat Reader to view it. If you have a newer computer, it may already have been installed for you.
