Review

Historic Hudson is a perfect blend of words and photos. ... a riveting history of the Columbia County city. -- Hudson Valley magazine, October 2005

Historic Hudson is a perfect blend of words and photos. -- Hudson Valley magazine, Oct. 2005

So much of the architectural fabric of early Hudson [has]remained intact. Historic Hudson: An Architectural Portrait confirms this survival. -- from the introduction by Rudy Wurlitzer & Lynn Davis

Today there is new awareness of just how valuable, both aesthetically and monetarily, our architectural heritage is. -- from the foreword by John Ashbery

Format: Paperback
A thoroughly entertaining account of a Hudson River city with a truly fascinating history. I recommend it to anyone interested in nineteenth-century America, American architecture, especially the vernacular architecture of the northeast, and America as it once was. The vintage photographs are wonderful!
