Mont Helena
Last Home of Helen Johnstone Harris
Located between Anguilla and Rollng Fork, Mississippi

Built on top of a ceremonial Indian mound, Mont Helena is more than a house or a building:  it is the legacy of Helen Johnstone Harris. Also known as "The Bride of Annandale," Helen Johnstone and her husband, George Harris, an Episcopal minister, built the house to be their retirement home.  Located near Rolling Fork, Mississippi, and situated in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, Mont Helena is a beautiful example of Colonial Revival architecture.  Click here to read more about Helen Johnstone and George Harris and the history of their last home, Mont Helena.
