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.
Our Tour History
In 1947 Hudson Garden Club sought a way to raise funds to replace the many trees lost to Dutch elm disease and decided to conduct the first tour, which was gardens only that charged guests 50 cents a person, raising $24.50! Over the years the club expanded the tour to include both homes and gardens.
