College Craft Headquarters

College Craft was founded in 1960 when O.T. Nelson, College Craft's student founder, pulled a couple of friends together and painted his first home. A hand lettered sign in the front yard read, "Painting Done By College Craft Painters." Terry's business phone was his parents home phone and his office was the kitchen table. History behind the sign
