Hudson is located on the western edge of Lenawee County at the junction of US-127 and M-34.|
This historic town was first settled in 1833 by Hiram Kidder who moved here from New York. At that time, it was called Bean Creek, named for a stream two miles south which contained a lot of what was called "bean timber." It was renamed Lanesville in 1836 when Beriah H. Lane became the first postmaster. In 1840, it was renamed Hudson, after Dr. Daniel Hudson from Geneva, New York, one of the town’s first landowners. It became incorporated as a village in 1853 when the Lake Shore & Southern Michigan Railroad came through and built a station here. It was eventually incorporated as a city in 1893.
Hudson today retains its historical look, with the entire downtown area and several houses being designated historic places on the National Register, ( a must-see for history buffs.). It is supported today by small business, tourism and several manufacturing facilities including aluminum castings and screw machine products.
