Description
Founded by fur traders on the St. Croix River in the 1840s, Hudson developed into a prosperous steamboat and lumbering center within 20 years. Evoking the Victorian era are renovated historic buildings in the downtown and residential areas. The stately houses along Third and Vine streets were the showplaces of wealthy merchants and lumber barons.
The Phipps Center for the Arts , 109 Locust St., presents theatrical productions, concerts, art exhibitions and other cultural programs; phone (715) 386-8409. Lakefront Park along the St. Croix River offers fishing, boating and swimming. A free summer concert series is also offered Thursday at 7 p.m.; phone (715) 386-4765. Just outside of town is Willow River State Park.
