Hudson Montessori School is located in the historic city of Hudson, Ohio, est. 1799. Originally part of the Connecticut Western Reserve, the city is named after its founder, David Hudson, who settled here from Goshen, Connecticut. Hudson was also the first home of Western Reserve College, now Western Reserve Academy. Hudson was a vital link in the Underground Railroad in the years preceding and during the Civil War and was the childhood home of abolitionist John Brown. The town still has several tunnels beneath its streets and many 19th century homes have secret rooms and passageways -- reminders of this period in Hudson's history.
A quiet exurb of both Cleveland and Akron, the city has been cited "among the top 100 historic places in the nation" by the National Historic Trust of Historic Preservation and was recognized as one of the "100 Best Communities for Young People" by the America's Promise Alliance.
