Our Mission

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 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.

Arts-Led Advancement

Growing 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.

Cultural Investment

Supporting 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.

Historic Preservation

Maintaining Hudson's Legacy

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.

Community Anchor

Enhancing Cultural Accessibility

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.
