Wisconsin’s town of Hudson was established in 1840, witnessing its first homes built at the mouth of Willow River. Here along the beautiful St. Croix River, today's Hudson was first christened with a fitting name, Buena Vista. Early residents not only enjoyed the economic boom from a bustling lumber business, but this wonderful river setting. The busy St. Croix saw a steady stream of packet boats, steam powered stern wheelers and side wheeler river boats. Reminiscent of New York’s Hudson River, the town’s first mayor lobbied to have the name changed to Hudson.
