The 100-year-old Hudson Library & Historical Society is committed to providing access to information, assisting in the preservation of community history and providing genealogical and historical resources to the public. Our facility is located at 96 Library Street in Hudson, Ohio. The historical society, located in the archives department on the second floor of the building, collects and maintains artifacts, photographs, books and other materials of historical and genealogical significance to the community. This research-based collection also contains a strong Ohio genealogy collection, as well as a northern Ohio history collection. The holdings of the archives department include many manuscript collections from Hudson area families and community organizations as well as several community record groups.
