The Unveiling Continues

In January, Gossips reported that the metal siding sheathing the 1856 Gifford Foundry Building was being removed.

Today, stucco is being removed to expose the original brick.

The Historic Preservation Commission granted a certificate of appropriateness to remove the metal siding and restore the brick beneath back in July 2021. At the time, Gossips commented, "It will be interesting to watch this reveal." Who knew the process would take so long? 

The building, which is seen in the historic photograph below, has been owned by the Galvan Initiatives Foundation since 2014.

  1. I'd like to have a dollar for every cubic yard of junk siding that has been taken out of Hudson in recent years.
