Artist's Description

Walking east on Warren Street Hudson, NY across from the Hudson Opera House. The building was built in 1855 as the first City Hall for Hudson. In early years, the first floor of the building was home to the Franklin Library, and the First National Bank of Hudson. Frederic Church and Sanford Gifford showed their paintings here, Bret Harte read his poems, and Henry Ward Beecher gave a rousing abolitionist lecture. Susan B. Anthony visited at least twice, the first time lecturing about abolishing slavery, and the second time to rally support for women’s suffrage. Around 1880, at the height of the Gilded Age, and shortly after Paris built it’s new Opera House, the Palais Garnier, many town halls and city halls in America adopted the ‘Opera House’ name which is how this building came to be known as the Hudson Opera House.
