Hudson was part of Marlborough called Feltonville, until it was incorporated as its own town in 1866. 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 has an Executive Assistant who manages the town under the auspices of the Board of Selectmen.

Hudson selectmen discuss regulating recreational marijuana

September 1st, 2017

Hudson – As some neighboring communities impose bans and moratoriums, selectmen discussed a range of actions they could take to regulate the soon-to-be legalized sale of recreational marijuana in Hudson at their Aug. 28 meeting.

Selectmen considered options including imposing a temporary moratorium on sales of the drug until town officials can review state regulations set to be released in March 2018. Likewise, they also discussed the possibility of enacting a permanent ban on sales. The board decided not to pursue such a permanent ban, and shied away from the prospect of imposing a moratorium in the near future, instead agreeing to begin preparing regulatory items to be voted on at next May’s Town Meeting.
