Hudson is a town in Caldwell County, North Carolina, United States. The population was 3,078 at the 2000 census. It is part of the Hickory–Lenoir–Morganton Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Hudson is a one-time booming furniture production town that was hard hit by the transition of furniture production from other coutries in the last decade. Main street Hudson has an All-American feel. Hudson's landmarks are the "HUB" (the Hudson Uptown Building, the former Hudson Elementary school where locals can gather for special events), The Yellow Submarine, the Hudson Library, the Hudson Volunteer Fire Department, The Hudson Bench Gang and the Bench Gang Bus behind the old town hall building (the Hudson Bench Gang might stimulate fear in some, but there retired locals began gathering in the 1980's to discuss everything from politics to weather to their earlier years. This friendly group of guys offered a warm welcome to nearly every passer by), the Hudson Post Office, the Hudson Optimist Club (where many young local boys and girls can enjoy America's greatest pastime), and Hudson Primary Care. On clear days, Hudson offers wonderful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains highest peaks at Grandfather Mountain. These views can be seen picturesquely over Hudson Middle School directly off the Hudson HWY 321 exit. "New York Times" bestselling author Jan Karon attended first through eighth grades at Hudson School in the historic building now known as the HUB.
