The Hudson Armory Project is an innovative initiative of the Hudson Cultural Alliance — an all-volunteer, local non-profit invested in the transformation of the The Armory building into a regional arts and cultural center.

Our Mission

Transforming a Historic Landmark into a Home for Culture and Community

The mission of the Hudson Armory Project is to transform the historic Armory Building into a preeminent cultural destination for the MetroWest region.

Grow the Creative Economy

A cultural arts center like The Armory in Hudson's downtown with its award-winning Main Street will bring economic benefits, serve a large population, and boost local businesses, while enriching the quality of life for community members and families in the region.

Support our Community

The Armory provides a vast open space for diverse purposes such as entertainment, education, and meetings, enabling the Town of Hudson to enhance community events and foster economic growth through collaborations with local organizations.

Maintain Hudson's History

Built by Fenway Park's architect James E. McLaughlin, The Armory has served as a military facility, dance hall, voting site, and training center, and the Hudson Armory Project will showcase its history through public exhibitions.

Accessible for All

Located in downtown Hudson on the Assabet River, The Armory's size and central location make it a natural anchor for the arts and cultural district and an accessible venue for a diverse population from surrounding towns in the 495 MetroWest Corridor.

Our vision

Transforming a Historic Landmark

In its rehabilitated form, the Armory will promote local arts initiatives, support economic growth, and preserve the rich lineage of a building known for its extensive service to the community.


Through the hard work of the community, Senator Eldridge, and Rep Kate Hogan, the town of Hudson acquired the Armory and signed a lease with the Hudson Cultural Alliance

Renovating the Armory building begins with functional assessments and architectural proposals but it is the vision of a gathering space full of people, music, art, classes and celebrations that really drives the engine of change.

The Hudson Cultural Alliance will partner with local non-profits, town departments, and businesses to bring a plethora of activities and events to the community. The Hudson Armory’s programming will be designed to appeal to the interest and needs of the people it serves.
