Mark Nelson, the owner, is originally from Kansas City, MO and his wife, Gretchen, from Greenville, MI. Though both are "out of towners", they are 100% behind developing and encouraging local pride in Steubenville.
Mark had this to say… "I have 8 kids, and they were all born on our farm here in Steubenville. This is THEIR hometown. I want it to be something they're proud of; I want Steubenville to be a place they want to stay in when they grow up; not somewhere to move away from."
Many of the products are Mark's own photographs or original ideas. An avid outdoorsman, Mark loves to photograph the river, bridges, nature, and the historic buildings in our town. A strong promoter of the beauty of the river, the many local lakes, forests, parks, farms, and especially the people, Mark wouldn't trade living here for anyplace. Nelson Fine Arts recently worked with city leaders in developing a new logo for the City of Steubenville.
Our hope is that our Steubenville Product Line goes to encourage people to a deeper love and pride in our community. We have much to be thankful for and a rich heritage to be proud of.
