After the D.O. Smith School on Windham Road was destroyed by fire, the school district voted to build a new school of similar size.  The sum of $900 plus the amount received from insurance was allocated for this purpose.  A conscious decision was made to not re-build on the Windham Road location.   The Hudson Center School, a two room house, was built on the east side of Pelham Road (now Kimball Hill Road)  just a short distance from Hudson Center.   This school remained in use until 1956 when it was closed.  The students were combined with the classes at Webster School.  Of the two teachers:  Florence Parker became a reading supervisor and Mrs. Marguerite Gilman  taught a second grade.  This building remains today and is privately owned.  Photo from Historical Society Collection.
