Amos Thompson House
This is said to have been built by Stephen Thompson, Revolutionary War soldier and a pioneer in the Western Reserve. He came to Hudson with his family in 1801, and this house, c. 1830s, was not his first.
Sited on a hill, this was the only house in the immediate area and had a splendid view of the surrounding farmland. The original section is unpretentious and evocative of the Connecticut origins of the early settlers. The gable is low, with a wide frieze and returns, and there are small windows rising to a point just below the frieze. The section to the south is an addition.
