Hudson

Hudson is a town in Caldwell County, North Carolina, United States. The population was 3,078 at the 2000 census. It is part of the Hickory–Lenoir–Morganton Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Hudson is a one-time booming furniture production town that was hard hit by the transition of furniture production from other countries in the last decade.[citation needed] However, things are looking up for the small town as new businesses continue to relocate into the area as well as retirees who like the close proximity to the mountains and the low cost of living.[citation needed] Hudson's landmarks are the "HUB" (the Hudson Uptown Building, the former Hudson Elementary school where locals can gather for special events), The Yellow Submarine, The Gold Mine Fine Jewelry & Gifts, Inc., the Hudson Library, the Hudson Volunteer Fire Department, the Hudson Post Office, the Hudson Optimist Club (where many young local boys and girls can enjoy America's greatest pastime), and Hudson Primary Care. The town boasts two parks—Redwood Park features a beautiful playground with children's slides/activities, a swimming pool and several ballfields. The Hickman Windmill & Depot Museum Park features the Historic Hudson Depot and Red Caboose as well as a 100 year old windmill. Music is often performed in the park, most notably Pickin' In the Park during summer months. On clear days, Hudson offers views of the Blue Ridge Mountains highest peaks at Grandfather Mountain. These views can be seen picturesquely over Hudson Middle School directly off the Hudson HWY 321 exit. New York Times bestselling author Jan Karon attended first through eighth grades at Hudson School in the historic building now known as the HUB. Activities of note in Hudson include the annual Butterfly Festival which is held in May, Pickin' In The Park and the Fourth of July Kiddie Car Parade. The HUB has been the site of a popular, successful, critically acclaimed dinner theatre since 2003.
