Centre d'histoire vivante Greenwood 1

254, Rue Main Hudson Québec J0P 1H0

450-458-5396

Greenwood House is a historic home and garden that offers visitors an unparalleled vision of the region’s past. Built on the banks of Lac des Deux-Montagnes in 1732 and expanded in the following years, Greenwood Cottage has been the home of the Delesderniers, Shepherd, and Nobbs families for five generations, two families of fascinating characters whose letters and effects bring life to the house decades later. You will hear their stories as you tour the beautifully conserved property full of period furniture, costumes and important Canadian artifacts; you can even stay for tea on the back porch! The non-profit organization preserves the house and relies on volunteers to allow public access to the house during the summer. The heritage of these generations is a treasure to be shared for all current generations and all those to come.

Le Verger de Hudson Bio 5

839, Rue Main Hudson Québec J0P 1H0

450-458-0163

This small orchard is situated in picturesque Hudson, where it grows 12 varieties of apples and supports a growing bee colony that works hard to keep the trees pollinated and fruitful. The apple trees grow in rich clay soil, sheltered by the ideal microclimate provided by Lac des Deux-Montagnes just across the road. Visitors will love trying out rare and unknown types of apples, not your usual Red Delicious and Royal Galas! The delicious honey produced by the farm’s bees is flavoured by the flowers blossoming in and around Hudson, providing a real treat to anyone with a sweet tooth. During the autumn apple season, Le Verger de Hudson organizes many special events and is open for apple-picking; on your way out, stop by the farm shop for gourmet finds and tastings. This year, the orchard has a tin-roofed pavilion for outdoor events. Their apples, honey, and other products will be available at events around the region.
