The first bank in Hudson was a branch of the Indian Head Bank. The bank established temporary quarters in October 1963 at the corner of Ferry Street and Campbell Avenue. A permanent brick building was soon completed at the same location and was opened in March 1964. By November 1976 the bank purchased the former home of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Johnson and built a more spacious office with ample parking. The original, and smaller, building was removed from the lot onto the site of the former Bradley’s Market at 39 Ferry Street on the corner of Library Street. The first photo, taken C1977, shows the Indian Head building. As a result of bank mergers it is now Santander Bank.
The second photo shows the office of the Hudson Fire Department at 39 Ferry Street. This building was the former Indian Head Branch building at the corner of Ferry and Campbell in 1964 and removed in 1976. Photos from the Historical Society Collection.
