History of Hudson Maxim School:
It has been just over a year since Hudson Maxum School was closed by the BOE and the boiler failure that left the town, teachers and administrators scrambling to more the materials and integrate the students into the other schools within one weekend.
The school was built in the early 1900s and as such has little infrastructure to support another owner without complete demolition and redevelopment of the property.
