2000 Nelson Street was at the southwest corner of Nelson Street and Chilco Street. (Although there were references to 2000 Nelson Street in the 1901 and 1902 Vancouver directories, they should probably refer to the house at 2001 Nelson Street for those years.)

Legal Description: District Lot 185, Block 69, Lots 14 and 15.
