Historic Hudson: In Person Walking Tour, Aug 22

Big Onion Walking Tours’ Historic Hudson – In Person Tour, takes place on Saturday, August 22. The City of Hudson is much more than a quaint town in the Hudson River Valley. Founded by Quakers in 1785, Hudson quickly grew to a major commercial center and almost became the capital of New York State. Hudson offers the finest “Main Street” in New York and features examples of every architectural style since the late 18th century, including two of the rarest, Adam and Egyptian Revival.

The tour will explore the diverse social history, architecture, and people of this Upstate urban center. Stops could include: Promenade Hill, Nantucket Houses, sites associated with the Underground Railroad, the most notorious Red Light district north of Times Square, and locations associated with Thomas Jefferson, Ma Brown, Charles Dickens, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jack “Legs” Diamond, Ada Louise Huxtable, and Lieutenant William H. Allen, who was killed by pirates.

DATE/TIME: Saturday, August 22, 2020 / 1pm
Tour is approximately 2 hours long

Meet at the gazebo on the corner of Union Street & West Court, in front of Columbia County Courthouse.

TICKETS: $30 ($20 Seniors & Full-Time Students)
