The patriarch of The Peterson Company is Howard C. Peterson. In 1949 Howard rode a Harley-Davidson from his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin to attend the Indianapolis 500. He was 19 years old at the time and had just $20 in his pocket. However, he liked Indy so much that he decided to stay and soon found a job laying blocks for houses. That set him on the path to becoming a general contractor and eventually a developer with great success.
Howard Peterson was a highly respected businessman, civic leader, and philanthropist who had a tremendous impact on Indianapolis. His passion, vision, character, and principles continue to be a guiding force within The Peterson Company today.
