What has eight sides and holds more than 150 years of Hudson history? That would be the Octagon House Museum, located on downtown Hudson's historic Third Street. Established as one of the first houses in the neighborhood, the unique Octagon House was built for a family who moved to Hudson from New York. The house has since been converted to a museum, where it tells stories not only of the families who lived there, but of city of Hudson's history as well.

On this week's St. Croix Stories, Octagon House Museum director Leila Albert joins to share more about the house and the history that can be found inside. She also shares about her own personal love of history, discusses a few unique historical moments that occurred in Hudson over the years, and talks about why it's so important that our community has a place like the Octagon House Museum to both preserve Hudson's history and share it with future generations.

If you've never visited the Octagon House Museum — or even if you have — be sure to check it out. It's located at 1004 3rd Street in Hudson, and is open Fridays through Sundays between May 4 and October 27. You can also learn more at octagonhousemuseum.org.
