Working Together on the Shores of the Hudson

Welcome to the Historic Hudson River Towns!

We are delighted to have you visit our website and look forward to seeing you when you visit our member communities. Historic Hudson River Towns is a consortium of riverfront municipalities (villages, towns and cities) that was formed in 1994 to work together on issues of common concern. Our major focus has always been tourism development, with related issues of riverfront renewal and downtown revitalization.
