Hudson, Massachusetts is located in Middlesex counties. It is 40 miles west of Boston and 16.5 miles northeast of Worcester.
Before its incorporation in 1866, Hudson was the Feltonville suburb of neighboring Marlborough. With 17 shoe factories powered by the Assabet River, Hudson was also known as "Shoe Town". The Hudson factories drew in numerous immigrant populations. Today, most people in Hudson are of either Portuguese or Irish descent, with a smaller percentage of Hudson being of French, Italian, English, or Scots-Irish descent. Today high tech industry has replaced the once thriving shoe industry.
