Hudson Forest TX History

Hudson Forest was once the site of Camp Hudson, a Boy Scout camp property.

In 1925, E. A. Hudson, a local business owner and Boy Scout Council President, donated the 125-acre wooded property skirting the banks of the Buffalo Bayou. By the 1960s, the camp played host to several Boy Scout events, including district training, weekend camping, day camps, and picnics.

In the 1970s, the Scouts decided to let go of the property, since Houston’s westward expansion had made Camp Hudson less remote. Due to their fondness of the property, the Scouts were very selective of the companies intending to purchase it.

The property ultimately went to the Christiana Company, helmed by California developer Martin Fenton. Fenton’s plan ensured that mature trees around the property are preserved, plotting the community’s roads to follow the roaming trails in the area.

Christiana Company decided to sell some of the acreage to Levering & Reed (developed their parcel into Woods at Hudson), opting to keep around 50 acres.

Hudson Forest was developed in phases, starting with six model homes with open floor plans and a certain California flavor.

In 1978, Christiana Company sold another portion of the property to Frank Liu, who developed the parcel into Hudson Circle.

Today, Hudson Forest is one of Houston’s best gated communities, prized for its lush environment, great homes, and excellent location.
