[ARCHIVED] Ohio Open Doors Honors Historic Sites in Hudson

christ episcopal

Brought to you by the Ohio History Connection, Ohio Open Doors is a statewide effort where Ohio communities open the doors to historic buildings for special tours and programs. The City of Hudson is pleased to announce that it will participate in Ohio Open Doors on September 18, 2016 from 2:00-4:00 pm. Join us in honoring the history, design and stories of Hudson’s historic churches and houses of worship as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.

Christ Church Episcopal, 21 Aurora Street; First Congregational Church, 47 Aurora Street; Spiritual Life Center, 1 East Main Street; Temple Beth Shalom, 50 Division Street and The Chapel at Western Reserve Academy, 147 College Street will open their doors to public for tours and presentations on the history of these buildings on a walking tour through Hudson’s historic downtown. This event is free and open to the public. Check-in will be at Hudson Town Hall, 27 East Main Street, on the day of the event to obtain a walking tour map.

“Ohio Open Doors showcases the stories of important landmarks right in our backyard,” says Burt Logan, Executive Director and CEO of the Ohio History Connection. “The 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act is the perfect time to highlight the history and the uniqueness of Ohio’s most treasured places.”

Established in 1966, the National Historic Preservation Act has been instrumental in preserving the historic fabric of our cities and neighborhoods. It has transformed the face of communities from coast to coast, establishing the legal framework and incentives to preserve historic buildings, landscapes and archaeology. The act drives economic revitalization by attracting investment, supporting small business, stabilizing neighborhoods and creating jobs.

For more information about our participation in Ohio Open Doors, visit ohiohistory.org, or call the City of Hudson Community Development Department at 330-342-1790.
