Picture of Hudson home donated

Paul and Laurel Hudson were visitors to the museum on April 5, 2014. They donated this painting, which shows the home of Isaac and Amanda Hudson, for whom Hudson is named. The couple is sitting on the porch. There are fish nets on the left and bee hives on the right. The home was rebuilt in 1945 by Hershel Hudson, son of Alfred Leander Hudson, who is the boy feeding the chickens. The painting is relatively modern, by Patricia Newman, but it is based on an old photograph from perhaps the late 1870s.
