The building was originally built as a dance hall dubbed Nelson Hall in 1929. It was dedicated in 1930. There were just gravel roads in the area then. First, he built a gas station and then the dance hall. Nelson City was put on the map at that time and still is on the Texas Highway map, although there is no post office now. Edwin's son, Harold, said he was twelve years old at the time and his job was to cook hamburgers at 5 cents apiece. Soda pop was also a nickel. Another interesting thing was that it was during prohibition so no alcoholic beverages were allowed. That didn't seem to be a problem outside the building, however, because bootleggers peddled moonshine for 25 cents a shot. You could buy larger sizes of moonshine up to $3.00 a gallon.
