The History Behind the Hardware

Established in 1983 by Carroll, Sarah and Bob Nelson, Nelson Ace Hardware carries on the family's legacy of serving Vermonters for over a century. Previously operating as Nelson Brothers with locations in Barre, Montpelier and Randolph from 1953-1982, the company is now called Nelson Ace Hardware under the leadership of Bob and Linda Nelson.

As an integral part of the community, our hardware store provides employment opportunities to local residents, including high school and college students. Both Linda and Bob take pride in their involvement within the Barre Community and look forward to welcoming you to Nelson Ace Hardware.
