Helena, Texas

History

Helena 1857. From Goliad to San Antonio, Olmsted describes his journey as over “an undulating surface of very rich but light soil, covered with close, fine mesquite grass, and other shrubs and trees. Much of it is still uninhabited prairie. We passed but one American settlement—the little town of Helena, which had just been built. - Olmstead’s Account in 1857, A Twentieth Century History of Southwest Texas; Chicago: Lewis Pub. Co., 1907, page 188
