The city of Hudson is named after its founder, David Hudson, who settled here from Goshen, Connecticut, in 1799 when it was part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. The village of Hudson, located in the center of Hudson Township, was incorporated in 1837. It was here that David Hudson built the first log house in Summit County, Ohio. The landmark Hudson Clock Tower, was built in 1912 by James Ellsworth who was born in the village in 1849.
