About

Nelson Surveying, Inc., located in Ashland, Wisconsin was established by Thomas W. Nelson in 1954. Larry Nelson worked for the firm since 1968 and purchased the firm in 1982. Over the years, Nelson Surveying, Inc., has acquired the records of Superior Surveys of Washburn, Wisconsin and other firms with records that date back to the 1890s. NSI serves Ashland, Bayfield, Iron, Douglas Price and Vilas Counties in Wisconsin and Gogebic County in Michigan.

Heart of the North Surveying of Hayward was established in 1962 by Ron Peterson. In 1993, the firm was purchased by Larry Nelson. Heart of the North Surveying serves Sawyer, Bayfield, Douglas, Price, Rusk, Washburn, Barron, Polk, Burnett and Chippewa Counties.

Jason and Peter Nelson, the grandsons of the founder, Thomas W. Nelson, are professional land surveyors in the State of Wisconsin and are in the process of acquiring both firms.

FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS

Best practices dictate that surveyors follow in the footsteps of previous surveyors. These two firms are in a unique position to do this, as we have acquired the survey records of several professional land surveyors in the area dating back to the 1890’s.
