Nelson was a gold mining town in the 1800s and early 1900’s, with a bit of a dark history. There are a few original buildings still standing, along with lots of antiques to create the perfect ghost town atmosphere. I felt like I was on a movie set. A lot of people go out to Nelson for photoshoots, and I completely see why. The town makes the perfect backdrop for photographers.
Here are some of the pictures my husband and I took. I didn’t get as many as I would have liked, because Jack was keeping me extremely busy.
