Hudson's Oldest House
Gossips has heard that there's an accepted offer on the Robert Taylor House, believed to be the oldest surviving house in Hudson, predating the arrival of the Proprietors in 1783 and the incorporation of the City of Hudson in 1785.
This blog takes its name from the 1850 novel by Hudson author Alice B. Neal. The original Gossips of Rivertown cast a gimlet eye on Hudson society in the mid-19th century. More than a century and a half later, the new Gossips carries on the spirit of the original, but in a different genre and with a different focus.
