Long Description:
It is, nonetheless, a charming little wood frame building, with its scalloped shingle façade and sunrise motif above the door. It is sufficiently well preserved to have co-won the City of Nelson's "Heritage Building of the Year" award in 1983, the fourth building to receive such recognition. It was built in or around 1895 and has since been recognized as a City of Nelson Heritage Building.
Little is known about this wooden structure except that it operated as a grocery store until 1972. This building is typical boomtown architecture with a bracketed cornice that gives an illusion of grandeur. Note the carpenter’s detailed sunburst motif and the decorative cedar shingles. The Bellamy and adjacent Ludwig structure received Nelson’s Heritage Building of the Year awarded in 1983.
From a Walking Tour of Nelson’s Heritage Buildings number 10.
