An Ohio New England Village

Hudson, Ohio is near Cleveland, Ohio, and is a picture-perfect example of New England architecture. This area, called "The Western Reserve", was land set aside for payment of Revolutionary War soldiers in the Connecticut Line companies for their service in lue of money, which the young nation had none to spare. They brought their building methods and styles with them, and Hudson is living proof of it.
