Save the Date

On Sunday, October 25, Historic Hudson invites all its members—past, present, and future—to explore the 19th-century landscape that surrounds the Dr. Oliver Bronson House, Hudson’s only National Historic Landmark. On that day, the grounds of the Bronson House will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors can enjoy the rare experience of walking the carriage road that once connected the Bronson estate to the heart of Hudson and learn about the potential for this amazing landscape to become a new public access park within our city. 


  1. Please share the address/location of this place.

    1. This is just a Save the Date notice, and there is much more information to come, but . . . the Dr. Oliver Bronson House is located on the grounds of the Hudson Correctional Facility, and it is now accessed from Worth Avenue.

  2. I encourage people who live in Hudson to walk or ride a bike to the grounds instead of driving. It's good for the environment and for your health. Plus, the ride downhill on the way back to Hudson on Union Street is more fun than a roller coaster!

  3. We should stop being so patient and demand that the state of New York open the site as a public access park right now.
    Historic Hudson's website states that "advocacy continues with productive conversations with New York State in setting aside acreage for a public access park immediately adjacent to the urban core of Hudson." Have the conversations stalled?
    To jump start the process, someone should set up a table at the open house and have pre-printed postcards to mail to elected officials and a petition for people to sign. Use this as an opportunity to move this effort forward. Maybe even have a "free the park" demonstration to get some media coverage.
    Feel free to check out the photos on my Facebook page showing the incredible views of the Catskills from the site.
