The Heaton Building

The Heaton Building is a Social Purpose Real Estate project envisioned and motivated by Gloria Nelson. Gloria is a lifelong Norton County resident with a passion for our county; ensuring a present beauty while maintaining an appreciation of our past. 

The project began with the gifts of the middle building from Warren Heaton in 2007 and the north and south buildings from Norman and Gloria Nelson in 2008. The building underwent renovations and was re-dedicated in 2016. A significant portion of renovation of the Heaton Building was funded by the generosity of Norman and Gloria Nelson. 

Today, the building is home to The Gloria A. Nelson Cultural Arts Center, commercial offices, event space, and the The Cozy Coworking.


The Gloria A. Nelson Cultural Arts Center

The Gloria A. Nelson Cultural Arts Center is a dedication to Gloria's personal commitment of preserving the historic beauty of this building and giving artists and visitors a place to gather and breathe beauty. Local and regional artists are on exhibit throughout the year.
