Tour History

In 1947 the Hudson Garden Club sought a way to raise funds to replace the many trees lost to Dutch elm disease and decided to conduct the first tour, which was gardens only. Over the years the club expanded the tour to include both homes and gardens. The event is the cornerstone of Hudson Days, a community-wide celebration highlighting the many activities available in the city. Over 1,250 people attend the tour each year.

What’s It Like?

Tour guests visit several homes and gardens around town as volunteer hosts and hostesses present facts of interest. Floral arrangements designed by Garden Club members with fresh material from local Hudson gardens enhance several rooms in each home and delight patrons each year. Tour guests provide their own transportation between stops, parking at the curbside or nearby. The ticket/program includes a map and information about the featured homes and gardens.
