Description

Collection of digital images, documents, and other records depicting the history of Hudson, Florida. Series descriptions are based on special topics, the majority of which students focused their metadata entries around.

Around 1868, the first Euro-American settlers, which included Isaac Hudson and his family, arrived in the present-day Hudson area, naming it Hudson's Landing. In the early 20th century, the lumber industry began to grow with the arrival of the Fivay Company. In the late 1950s, the Army Corps of Engineers constructed 25 miles of canals, which served as transportation for new waterfront lots for many new residents to Hudson.
