The first pictorial history of Helena, Alabama, this new volume traces the progress of a small crossroads village into one of the state’s most vibrant and rapidly growing cities. Helena’s story is one of
extraordinary strength and perseverance. The community has braved numerous blows, including the onslaught of 10,000 Union troopers, a devastating tornado, and the decline of its once successful iron and coal industries. With nearly 200 images―many previously unpublished―Helena, Alabama introduces the area’s early settlers and reveals a community grown wealthy on the fortunes gouged from the earth
at nearby coal mining camps. From education to recreation, from farming to industrial progress, discover the way of life in Helena as it was experienced long ago. Collected over a 30-year period, the photographs in this collection are indeed rare treasures. Many of the images featured have been gathered from such diverse sources as a
steamer trunk in an attic in Oregon, a St. Clair County yard sale, a dilapidated barn along Buck Creek, and from carefully preserved family albums from California to McCalla, Alabama.
