$1 to $1 million

Dear Editor,

Interesting article on the Hudson Village Theatre in the July 2 edition of The Journal.

Did you know that the train station was originally sold to Christine Hunt (who has an art studio across the road from The Journal) for $1? Miss Hunt wanted to set up an Art Centre & Gallery in the station but financing became a problem.

The Markgrafs (who ran a very successful theatre in Mon Village) but needed a more weatherproof venue. They ran the HVT for many years until the present set-up, from the 1990s to now.

Thanks to Christine Hunt’s purchase of the station for $1 till last month’s grant of $894,000, the Hudson Village Theatre has come a long way.
