Honda of Burlington Careers

Nelson Family Auto History

The Nelson Family’s involvement in the automotive industry spans a century. Father and son, Hans and Nelse Nelson, immigrated to the United States from Sweden in the late 19th Century and owned a livery stable with horses for hire in Ballard. Their transportation business evolved with the next generation when Nelse’s son, Stanley Nelson Sr., purchased a one-pump gas station and tire store. Stan Sr. also operated a taxi service to shuttle passengers between Ballard and Seattle. As cars became increasingly available and automotive technology continued to advance, opportunity arose for Stan Sr. to establish a Chevrolet franchise and in 1922, Nelson & Kellogg Chevrolet in Seattle was born, the first store in the lineage of family-owned dealerships. Stan Sr. passed on his high standards and strong values to his two sons, Stan Jr. and Fredrick, who operated dealerships of their own. In time, the two brothers would teach the same lessons to their children and to their children’s children. In all, four generations of Nelsons have worked and continue to work in the car business, proud to uphold the family values of integrity, service, and quality.

Honda of Burlington was established in 1979 by the Sims family. Now owned by the Nelson Family Automotive Group, our new and used Washington car dealership is committed to providing for the sales, finance and service needs of all Skagit Valley drivers.

When we're not assisting our customers with an automotive need, we're doing all that we can to give back to the communities we serve. Honda of Burlington sponsors both national and local organizations and foundations, including the Helping Hands Food Bank, Hospice of the Northwest, Boys and Girls Club, and the Mount Vernon Farmers Market.
