Gossips has always assumed that the houses were acquired and demolished in the 1950s, to make way for the school, and therefore was astonished to discover that the fate of the houses was already sealed in 1916, just a little more than forty years after Willard Place had been created and these two houses, among the first on Hudson's only private street, had been built. Yesterday, quite by accident, I stumbled upon this news item, which appeared on the front page of the Hudson Evening Register for October 4, 1916.
