Mont Helena / by Will Jacks

Built atop a ceremonial Indian Mound this 1896 home overlooks the surrounding Delta fields like a queen.  Helen Johnstone Harris and the Reverend George Carroll Harris were the first owners of the house.  Each Spring the Friends of Mont Helena present a drama that tells the tragic story of Helen and her first love Henry Vick of Nitta Yuma.  During the rest of the year, the home is open for tours by appointment.
