Town of Greenport

Greenport Historical Society

Mailing Address: Town Hall, 600 Town Hall Drive, Hudson NY 12534

The modern history of the Town of Greenport starts in 1609 with the voyage of Henry Hudson up the river which later became known as the Hudson River in honor of him.  Its Native American history extends much further into the past.  

Today, with a population of more than 4,000 people, Greenport is a thriving residential community that surrounds its better known neighbor, the City of Hudson.

Greenport is home of Frederick Church’s majestic estate, Olana, one of the Hudson Valley’s best-known destinations, with its spectacular views of the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains.  The town is also home to the Columbia-Greene Community College.
