If you have not been to the Octagon House at least once, you are missing out. Beautiful historic site, that has to be see to be appreciated. A drive by is not enough...although it is an intriguing building.

If you want a little nostalgia in the holidays, come to Hudson and go to the Octagon house. Great tour with people dressed in period costume. Very informative.

This is a great teachable place to take your children or just experience yourself. You learn some history of Hudson as well as the history of the family that once lived in the Octagon house.
