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 – More than a decade ago, Hudson entrepreneur David Greenwood launched his own public relations (PR) firm. A self-proclaimed “traditional PR guy,” he could easily get his clients featured in the newspaper or land them television publicity. But as social media emerged, it changed the PR industry, and Greenwood found himself having to do more and more for each customer. Having grown up with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the situation left him scratching his head, wondering how other entrepreneurs with ADHD juggle industry changes. His quandary gave him the idea to write a book on the topic. He did, and “Overcoming Distractions: Thriving with Adult ADD/ADHD” is due for release by Sterling Publishing Tuesday, Nov. 1.
