About Us

Founded in 1962, Hudson Heritage Association works to protect historic buildings, the village streetscape, and the city’s Western Reserve architectural aesthetic. We encourage the preservation of historic buildings by providing research, resources and education to homeowners who wish to maintain their historic homes and co-sponsor the city’s work with the Cleveland Restoration Society. HHA also works with building owners to help them meet historic marker requirements and identifies those buildings with the HHA historic marker. We also share and celebrate the history of Northeastern Ohio by publishing books and newsletters, conducting workshops and field trips, and hosting monthly meetings that feature local preservationists, historians and craftsmen.

HHA is funded primarily by our dues-paying members. Membership at various levels is open to any interested individual or business. We welcome your support for the work we are doing and invite you to become involved.
