NELSON — The Nelson Town Hall is the third structure built in town to house town government. The first two were located on the hill south of town.
A small, rude log building was built in 1773. As population in town increased, it was followed by a large two-story meetinghouse that served both church and town affairs. This dual function was no longer needed after the Nelson Congregational Church was built in 1841.
