Each June the Hudson Garden Club holds a Tour that showcases a few of the beautiful properties in this historic Western Reserve city. The 2021 Tour is outdoors only on Saturday, June 26 and Sunday, June 27. Hudson is located in northeast Ohio at the junction of Route 91 and Route 303.
In 1947 the Hudson Garden Club sought a way to raise funds to replace the many trees lost to Dutch elm disease and decided to conduct the first tour, which was gardens only. Over the years the club expanded the tour to include both homes and gardens. Due to Covid, this year the tour is outdoors only.
What’s It Like?
Tour guests visit nine properties around town. A volunteer hostesses will provide a program with details about each stop. Tour guests provide their own transportation between stops, parking at the curbside or nearby. The ticket/program includes a map and information about the featured properties. Read our FAQ and view photos of past Tours here and here. Follow our Facebook page titled The Hudson Garden Club – Ohio for this and other club events.
