Located about halfway between Lander and Riverton in Wind River Country, Hudson has that small town feel, perfect for families. Two well-maintained parks and a welcoming feel accentuate the small-town atmosphere. Ride bikes together, enjoy the open spaces, and recreate on the Popo Agie River, which runs through town. Enjoy lunch or dinner at one of the fine restaurants, and learn about the community’s rich mining, agriculture, and immigrant history.
Hudson was plotted and dedicated July 12, 1906. The name Rogerville was originally picked for Hudson, but there was a post office in the state of Wyoming already bearing that name. At its peak, the population of Hudson reached 1,500 people. In fact, the town’s bakery furnished bread to Lander and Riverton. The town boasted a motion-picture theatre—called the “Opera House,” a brickyard and kiln, a town newspaper entitled The Miner, a 15-piece band, a railroad depot, and much more.
Today, Hudson is home to annual festivities like Hudson Daze and some of the best-kept culinary secrets Wind River Country has to offer!
