Hudson was part of Marlborough called Feltonville, until it was incorporated as its own town in 1866. Eighteen years later, much of its downtown was nearly destroyed by a fire that was started with two young boys playing with firecrackers.Hudson was also once an important part of the Underground Railroad Movement during the Civil War. One of its favorite sons and biggest supporters is Paul Cellucci, who served as Governor of Massachusetts from 1997-2001 and then as United States Ambassador to Canada from 2001-2005.

The town is approximately 11.8 square miles and as of 2010, had a population of 19,063.  It is part of Middlesex County and its form of government is Open Town Meeting.

Hudson has an Executive Assistant who manages the town under the auspices of the Board of Selectmen.
