The City of Hudson takes immense pride in the wealth of preserved historic homes and our historic downtown district. The property owners and the Architectural and Historic Board of Review take great care to maintain this most valuable asset. Property owners are encouraged to maintain their historic homes and improve them in keeping with historic preservation standards. Any project that replaces building materials or changes the appearance of an historic structure requires City approval. Before approval is granted, projects must meet the standards contained in the City’s Architectural Design Standards and the U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.
There are many resources available to research the history of these structures as well to maintain them, some of which are listed below.

UPDATE - Historic District Expansion:
The City of Hudson is currently studying the viability of expanding the historic district. The current study area includes Elm Street, Roslyn Avenue, Bradley Drive and portion of E. Streetsboro Street.
A neighborhood meeting was held on July 17, 2019 with property owners located within the study area. The presentation can be accessed through the following link: Historic District Expansion Presentation.
A neighborhood survey has been administered and will remain open until December 6, 2019. The results of the survey will help determine if historic district expansion will be pursued.
