HUDSON FALLS — U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., will be in Hudson Falls on Friday morning to take a tour of the village’s historic Main Street.

Schumer’s 45-minute-long visit is his recognition of the importance of the historic village, said Village Attorney William Nikas.

The plan is to walk to the Hudson River Music Hall, the Annex building, the courthouse, the former Commercial National Bank of Sandy Hill, the Strand Theatre and the Masonic temple building.

All of the buildings were built in the late 1800s or early 1900s.

Speeches aren’t planned, Nikas said, but noted that perhaps Schumer will discuss historic tax credit issues since it will be relevant. He also said he suspects Schumer will answer questions from the public.

The tour will start around 11:15 a.m. and will start in the parking lot behind the courthouse.
