HAHC seeks old Helen photos
0502 GO Helen photos
The little town of Helen has reinvented itself several times in its hundred years to meet the challenges of changing times. This promotional photograph was used to entice visitors to Alpine Helen in the early 1980s.

The city of Helen’s 100th birthday is Aug. 18, and the Helen Arts & Heritage Center is asking visitors and residents to thumb through picture albums and search attics for old photos dating back as far as 1913.

Some will be used in a coffeetable picture book the Helen Arts & Heritage Center is compiling to celebrate the town’s diverse first century. Others may be used in upcoming displays at the center’s history room.

Digital copies of pictures can be emailed to or prints can be dropped off to be scanned at the Helen Arts & Heritage Center, at 25 Chattahoochee Strasse. If sending original photographs, please indicate if they are to be returned and label clearly with contact information.

HAHC asks photos be clearly identified with names of people and places, if available.

Call HAHC at 706-878-3933 to check hours of operation.
