Stretching along 9 miles of the Ottawa River (Lake of Two Mountains), the Town of Hudson, Quebec is a residential community located 35 miles west of Montreal. Originally settled by French Canadian farmers and “voyageurs” in the early 18th century, the region became known for its large English farming community in the early part of the 19th century. The immigrants were mainly from northern England, with others coming from Scotland, Ireland and the United States. Many of the original families, both French Canadian and English speaking, still have their descendents living in Hudson.
The last two decades have seen an increase in visitors, drawn to Hudson by its well known flea market, numerous antique boutiques, specialty shops and fine clothiers, and well known restaurants located mostly along Main Road. Hudson is only minutes away from some excellent equestrian facilities, cross country biking and hiking trails.
