As Christmas Approached . . . 100 Years Ago

An article on the front page of the Hudson Evening Register for December 22, 1915, reported that Christmas vacation for the schoolchildren of Hudson began that afternoon. It also announced that when school resumed on January 3, 1916, students would be moving into the new high school building, which only days before had been declared "perfectly safe and in every way structurally adequate for its intended uses."

Interestingly, although the style of architecture is named--Jacobean Gothic--there is no mention of the disaster that befell the building during construction.
