Description

The Nelson Brothers packinghouse in Downtown Oviedo, Florida, in the early 20th century. The company was originally founded by Steen Nelson and Gus Nelson and called Nelson Brothers. The company changed its name to Nelson and Company after it became a three-way partnership between the brothers and Benjamin Franklin Wheeler, Sr. In 1923, Wheeler became sole owner after buying out the company. Nelson and Company is located in what is now the Nelson and Company Historic District, and was incorporated in September of 2001. The 80-acre district encompasses four of Nelson and Company's historic buildings. This particular building was destroyed by Hurricane Charley in 2004.
