Helena History

Lake Davidson. Helena took on a resort air around 1915 when Tom Davidson unveiled his plans to develop his property along Buck Creek.  Fueled by the flush economic times preceding WWI, the skating rink that doubled as a dance hall was the center of  “good times”  for area residents. (Contributed/City of Helena Museum)
