As some of you know, over the years, I have been writing a series of vignettes on a variety of subjects. Pressed by Kevin to publish one or two of them as an inaugural venture on the new website of the Hudson Historical Society, I offer you a glimpse into a New Year's evening at my uncle Alphée's home in Alstonvale.

Welcome to article resource of the HHS. Here we have collected together all our articles, stories, and news that deal with the history of Hudson and its surrounding areas. There might even be some articles about historical happenings elsewhere in the world, but usually there will always be something in the story that links back to Hudson.
You have seen Holstein cows in the countryside wherever you have travelled in Canada and the United States. Did you know that many of those herds can trace their ancestry back to Hudson? Holsteins are the main cows of the dairy industry, and Hudson played an important role in making this happen. You can find out more by reading a small (35 pages) book on the topic called T.B. Macaulay and Mount Victoria Farm. It was written by Rod Hodgson, who writes often in the Hudson Gazette on historical topics.
A revised/edited compilation of 6 previous books on the subject *see overleaf of cover for full description of content and original authors.
