Helena- Established by French-Canadian prospectors from Oregon in about 1849. It's soil and weather seemed to support many acres of orchards for local produce. There were two hotels, a butcher, brewery, blacksmith and a sawmill. The modern day placename "Helena" was named for the wife of Mr. Meckel the owner of the hotel, when the post office refused the original placename "Northfork" that was already in use. Today many of the original buildings still stand on what is now private land. Today's Helena, located about 2 miles East of "Old Helena", between Junction City and Big Bar on Highway 299.

Please respect the property rights of the owners of this historic land. Visitors can see that vandals have periodically destroyed parts of the buildings.
