The town of Ludlow has an area of 36 square miles, and a population of 2,449. The resulting population density is 69 people per square mile. The village of Ludlow comprises the downtown area.

The Okemo Ski Resort monopolizes the town with four-season activities geared toward generating tourism. Winter is probably the busiest time of year, but Summer and Fall are also busy with sightseers and outdoor enthusiasts of all variety. In this regard, Ludlow has a number of shops, galleries, and restaurants. Some of them, and other attractions are listed below:

Ludlow was founded in 1761. This must have been a good year for town founding in the area. Seems like every town in the area was founded in 1761. Like many locations, the presence of a river, in this case the Black River, provided water power to run mills that in turn produced grist, lumber, and woolens, which formed the basis for the economy of the area.
