Historic Homes and Churches

Our heritage and culture preserved through architecture

Founded in 1820, Helena has an impressive number of historic homes that have been preserved over the years. Antebellum and Victorian homes can be found throughout the city, particularly in and around the downtown district. These historic homes and churches provide wonderful glimpses into the life of the Old South. Most of the homes remain private residences, so please respect the owners’ property and privacy rights.
