Nelson is in Nelson Twp, Tioga Co., PA, just n. of PA RT 49. The current hamlet is about 5 mi. west of Lawrenceville,PA, which is on US15.

The Nelson of Ben Blanchard's day was bulldozed and the site is now part of Cowanesque Lake, a US Corps of Engineers flood control project. But thanks to the efforts of Ila Hess Lugg Wyle and other preservationists, some of the buildings were relocated to form a "new" Nelson, north of the original site.
