    Helena, located in North Shelby County, is synonymous with rapid but controlled growth. In the last twenty years Helena has experienced rapid and steady growth and is now recognized as a prime location for new opportunity and continued development. Helena has grown into a city that offers a lot of the conveniences of larger cities yet still maintains its family-oriented atmosphere.
    Helena also works hard to ensure that opportunities for new residential, commercial and educational growth are extended and enhanced.
  • Named the 13th "Best Place to Raise Your Kids" by Business Week in 2007, the growing suburb of Helena is approximately 20 miles from downtown Birmingham. In 2010, Helena's population was just under 17,000 people. It's a popular city for homebuyers of all ages. Named in the "Top 100 Best Places to Live" by Money Magazine in 2007, you'll find most home prices range between $125,000 and $500,000 with the average home selling for $205,000 in 2015. We bought our first house in Helena, within walking distance of Joe Tucker Park. Old Town Helena shopping, Sundown Cinemas at the Old Amphitheater each summer, and the annual Buck Creek Festival are just a few reasons to consider Helena when making a home purchase.

  • The town of Cove is what the postal records of mid 1800s called what we know of as Helena today. In 1856 the name changed to Hillsboro shortly before it was burned to the ground during the Civil war. . Then during the reconstruction years the railroad brought the area back to life. Helena Station was named after the daughter, Helen Lee, of the engineer that was sent to survey the land for the station. The town had its times of difficulty during the early 1900s but the citizens of this small town held it together. That bond is what gives it the charm it has today.

  • There are few places in the Birmingham area where you can truly feel as though modern convenience has been forgotten, but downtown Helena is definitely one of those places. A short drive from Birmingham, Helena is a quaint town with the historic charm of the late 1800's. "Old Town Helena" is just a small few blocks located on the banks of the river with a historic rolling mill as the backdrop. Helena was founded as a stopover for the Louisville & Nashville Railroad in the 1860's. While Helena has been named one of the fastest growing cities in Alabama as well as one of the best places to live, it still maintains its small town charm.

    Old Town Helena is the community's original shopping district. The stores were restored to offer unique shopping opportunities and quaint dining venues. Keeping with its history, all of the building have an old timey feel, reminiscent of the early 20th century. Old Town is located right on Buck Creek, which is host to an annual festival, attracting people from all over the Greater Birmingham Area and Shelby County. This long running event is home to the legendary, nail-biting, Duck Race, which starts up stream on Buck Creek and ends over the damn at the edge of the park. Right on the creek, dining options such as The Depot are great for watching the water flow by on a lazy day, before walking it off at the park across the road.

  • I lived in Dearing Downs in Helena for nine years when my kids were little and one of their favorite things was to go to Joe Tucker Park. We would grab the fishing poles, put the bikes on the carrier and head to the park. In nearly every instance, we would run into a bunch of their little friends so they would bail on me.

    The park offers a nice lake surrounded by a half mile walking path. There are always geese milling around waiting for someone to feed them. There is also a baseball field and a playground. Joe Tucker Park is a nice place to just kick back and enjoy being outside.
