Welcome to Hudson’s Hidden History
I’ve created this blog with the intention of researching and revealing various hidden historical gems in my beloved hometown of Hudson, Ohio. My current list of places to research includes…
– Stone Gatehouse – James Ellsworth’s Evamere Estate & Farms
– Hidden remnants of the Evamere Estate & Farms
– Remnants of Western Reserve Academy’s old barns and farmlands
– Old inscriptions across WRA campus (North Hall, Hayden Hall, The Atheneum, Chapel, etc…)
Many more are to come! I encourage Hudson history buffs and general readers alike to please contact me with any ideas that you may have. I also plan to create and include reference maps of my research, findings, and pictures so that others may easily find them as well.
Until next time…
What a great blog! I too am a fan of local Hudson history and specifically enjoy the significance of the light on the side of the clock tower. Early Hudson Constibles were alerted to thier need when switchboard operators across the street at the Western Reserve Telephone Company would receive a call and turn on the light. The vast majority of people looking at the clock tower don’t even notice it, let alone know what it was for.
I just stumbled upon this blog. Are you still working it? Would love to talk.
