Eighteen years later, much of its downtown was nearly destroyed by a fire that was started with two young boys playing with firecrackers.Hudson was also once an important part of the Underground Railroad Movement during the Civil War. One of its favorite sons and biggest supporters is Paul Cellucci, who served as Governor of Massachusetts from 1997-2001 and then as United States Ambassador to Canada from 2001-2005.
The town is approximately 11.8 square miles and as of 2010, had a population of 19,063. It is part of Middlesex County and its form of government is Open Town Meeting.

Hudson – Parents, grandparents and guardians are invited to attend “An Evening with Chris Herren,” Monday, April 7, at the Hudson High School (HHS) where the former NBA basketball star will discuss his journey back from a serious drug and alcohol addiction. The event, which is free, will start at 6 p.m. The program is sponsored by the Hudson Youth Substance Abuse Prevention (Hudson YSAP) Coalition.
The former college basketball star achieved his dream of playing professionally – including for the Boston Celtics and in leagues overseas – but his success was soon lost as he battled a dark descent into addiction.
