1668 The founding of the Hudson's Bay Company
Hudson's ship became stuck in the icy waters of Hudson's Bay. They were stranded there through winter.
1936 The opening of the Hudson Bridge
When they became trapped in America, Henry's crew turned against him. They left him behind in a small boat, where he later died, probably from exposure.
1938 The opening of Henry Hudson Park
In 1668, English explorers set sail for Hudson's Bay in Canada. They found it a successful place to trade furs, and so the Hudson's Bay Company was founded.
More than 300 years after his discovery, Henry Hudson had a bridge named after him. The Hudson Bridge is in New York.
The park was first begun in 1906 to celebrate the 300 year mark from Hudson's discoveries, but there were a lot of delays and the park wasn't finished until 1938. Henry's discoveries opened up a new wave of knowledge and exploration, leading us into the world we know today.
