Former Schools (in Chronological Order)[edit]

Felton Street School depicted on a 1912 postcard
  • The School Street Schoolhouse was built in 1854 and abandoned in 1925. It was located on School Street.[4]
  • The Old Broad Street School was built in 1867 and used until 1924. The New Broad Street School was built at the same site and was used until damaged by a fire. The new building, Cora Hubert Kindergarten Center replaced it at the same site.[4]
  • The Old Green Street School was built in 1878 and was located on Green Street. It was used until 1924, when it was demolished to make way for a private residence.[4]
  • The Felton Street School was built in 1882 and served as the town's high school until 1957. In 1986, the school was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
  • The Harriman Grammar School was built sometime in the late 19th century, and is located on the corner of Lake and Apsley Streets. It not only served as a grammar school but early years was the high school. The building currently houses the administrative offices of the Hudson Public Schools District. It was named after Dr. James Lang Harriman (1833–1907), a 40-year-long Hudson physician and surgeon who also served on the Hudson School Committee for 38 years.[4]
  • The Linden Street School was built in 1924 to replace the Old Green Street School; this makes sense location-wise, as Linden Street is located off of Green Street. The Linden Street School building still exists today as a condominium complex.[4]
  • The Packard Street School was also built in 1924, and is located on Packard Street. The building now houses the Hudson Police Department.[4]
  • The Cora Hubert Kindergarten Center was a kindergarten center that operated from 1992 to 2012, when the kindergarten closed permanently. Kindergartners now attend the elementary schools and the high school for classes. The former kindergarten is now left completely abandoned.
  • The High Street Elementary School at 30 High Street that is now the Hudson Animal Hospital.
