Banking on history

HUDSON

When you get to 110, maybe a facelift isn't such a bad idea.

Renovations of the 110-year-old Hudson Savings Bank – intended to both modernize the building and enhance its historic flavor - are underway and should be complete by the spring, bank officials say.

The two stage $800,000 project includes removing two of seven teller stations, upgrading heating and air conditioning systems and opening up the lobby portion of the Main Street building, President and CEO Mark O’Connell said.

O’Connell said brass gates in front of the safety deposit box area will be cleaned and restored and all the original windows will be replaced with new ones that are historically correct. The bank has been in existence in Hudson since 1869 and been in its current Main Street location since the building opened in 1895.
