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.

Young Hudson High tennis team eager for post season play

June 1st, 2017

Hudson — With but one senior on the roster for the Hudson High School (HHS) girls’ varsity tennis team and an abundance of talent lost to graduation in 2016, this season could have been rather easily written off as a rebuilding campaign preparing the younger players a base for 2018.

Not so fast, say players and coaches. All that this squad of determined Hawks has done is to produce a robust 16-1 record that includes 11 straight victories before a 3-2 loss to top League contender Gardner High. The team is playoff-bound once again and ready to step into the spotlight of District Tournament competition and they’re doing it with unbridled zeal and determination.
