The Acquisition Continues
On January 10, Gossips reported that the Galvan Initiatives Foundation had purchased the Hudson Upper Depot. Today, the Register-Star reports that Galvan has purchased not just the former train station but all of the Van Kleeck property in Hudson: "Van Kleeck's Tire closes Hudson business."
In addition to the historic train station, Galvan's latest acquisition includes but what remains of the Gifford-Wood Foundry and Machine Shop.
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.
