The chance to see Hudson's only National Historic Landmark, the Dr. Oliver Bronson House, doesn't happen every day, primarily because the house is located on the grounds of the Hudson Correctional Facility, and the folks in charge are quite particular about who comes and goes from there. Usually when Historic Hudson opens the house, it's for a fundraiser, and the price of admission is a substantial sum. But this coming Sunday, you can tour the house, admire the newly restored windows, hear architectural historian Alan Neumann talk about the house, the Bronsons, and the Picturesque Movement in American architecture, while enjoying wine and hors d'oeuvres prepared by the members of the Historic Hudson Board of Directors--all gratis, provided you're a member of Historic Hudson.
On Sunday, May 16, from 5 until 7 p.m., Historic Hudson holds its annual meeting at the Dr. Oliver Bronson House (also known as the Plumb-Bronson House). If you're not already a member of Historic Hudson, don't worry. Historic Hudson will be happy to sign you up on the spot, for a mere $25 annual membership fee.
