Samuel B. Rose House

Between approximately 1835 and 1855, William E. Dodge, a New York City businessman who cofounded in 1833 a metals importing company that later became one of the largest mining operations in the United States, purchased in the city of Hudson large tracts of land extending from the north side of State Street to Underhill Pond and from approximately Short Street on the west to North Sixth Street on the east. He later divided these parcels into smaller lots that were sold individually. Two lots on the east side of North Fifth Street between Prospect Street and Rope Alley were purchased in 1851 by Samuel Rose, who enlarged and remodeled a cottage that stood on the lot at the southeast corner of North Fifth and Prospect Streets.
