Pictures from the Past: Harris Hotel is colorful part of Hudson's past
When the Harris Hotel at 1015 First St. was razed in 1984, Hudson lost one of its best known landmarks. Though it had ceased being used as a hotel for more than 40 years, the building had been occupied by Adolph George (Duffy) Harris (1895-1982) for its final three decades. Harris inherited the property from his mother, Gunda (Tennyson) Harris, upon her death in 1940. The Harris family had lived in the hotel since the 1890s.
