The Water Tap Book
In 1888, the City of Hudson renumbered buildings on the west-east streets, to establish the “hundred blocks” for ease of building identification by location. The following document (The “Water Tap Book”), created at that time by Hudson’s Water Department and ordered by post-1888 addresses, shows what a building’s address was before and after 1888.
There are two houses on Allen Street that still preserve their pre-1888 addresses: 226 Allen Street has “84” in its stained glass window over its front door, and 330 Allen Street has “150” etched into the glass transom above its front door.
