  • 1611 Henry Hudson is cast out and left to die
  • Henry and his crew sailed through the strait and into a large bay. It later became known as Hudson's Bay.
  • 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.
