Description

Hudson Beach, Florida, in May of 1991. Hudson Beach is located west of U.S. Route 19 and north of Port Richey in Pasco County. Before Hudson Beach was developed as a public beach in 1960, there was a small island located near present-day Harbor Drive that was used for swimming and picnicking. Original plans to develop the beach were led by Bud Clark, joined by Tom Sawyer and the Hudson Community Club. Despite slow progress, the State of Florida announced plans to develop a state park on the site, along with U.S.-19. The project was completed in 1960.
