About Hudson, Wisconsin

During this time, Judge John Shaw Moffat and his wife, Nancy Bennet Moffat, moved to Hudson and built the now-famous Octagon House in the Hudson Historic District. In the day, an octagon-shaped house was thought to help keep a family healthy because light and air could enter from eight different directions.

Today, visitors to the Hudson Historic District can tour the Octagon House to get a feel for life in the mid-1800s. The St. Croix County Historical Society restored the house with Victorian-era furnishings and built a complex including a garden house and a carriage house with a gift shop and research center.

There are many other beautifully restored, Victorian-era homes on and around the Sixth Street Historic District in Hudson, Wisconsin. Some Hudson historic homes have become bed and breakfast inns, where visitors can enjoy a relaxing getaway while staying within walking distance of Lake St. Croix and waterfront dining, antique shops and art galleries.
