Hudson Station (Village Theatre West)


You might like to make a small detour to see the Hudson Station. Go down Wharf Road between 455 St. Joseph's Church and 460 Chateau du Lac and turn left before the tracks. The station was built in 1890-1891 when the Montreal and Ottawa Railway (M & O) completed a section of railway between Vaudreuil and Rigaud. Canadian Pacific Railway extended the station when it acquired M & 0 in 1892. In the 1930s, there were over 20 trains a day with stops at Como, Hudson, Hudson Heights, Alstonville, Choisy and Dragon. Now there are two trains a day on weekdays. The stations at the other stops have all been destroyed. One of the few remaining original CPR stations from last century, it has been preserved by conversion into a theatre. Call 458-3611 to find out what's playing.
