Responding to the ever increasing interest in the history of Hudson, NY, and the surrounding area, the popularity of its local history talks, and the increasing use of its archives, the History Room of the Hudson Area Library has launched its own website.
In addition, there is an online shop on the website with archival quality copies of historic maps, aeroviews, and posters of Hudson; sets of night-scene and Warren Street postcards and a set of note cards of prominent buildings from an 1871 map of Hudson; tote bags and tea towels with a line drawing of the historic Armory by local artist and musician Tony Kieraldo.
The Hudson Area Library has a dedicated History Room whose primary mission is to acquire, preserve, and make accessible the history of the library’s service area, which includes Hudson, Greenport and Stockport. These holdings are maintained, preserved, and protected in a secure, conservation-quality repository that is open to the public by appointment only at this time.
The Hudson Area Library is located at 51 North Fifth Street in Hudson, NY. For an appointment contact Brenda Shufelt by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (518) 828-1792 x106.
Online research requests for information on local history are available on the History Room website.
