but that the world might be saved through Him." John 3:17

 Alpine Helen is the most popular destination in North Georgia, and third in the state behind Atlanta and Savannah. The rugged beauty of this high mountain watershed known today as the Helen Valley attracts hundreds of thousand people to events such as Oktoberfest and the Alpine Lights. Yet today's Helen is vastly different than the rough and tumble days not so long ago.

Helen:Her Story follows the development of Helen, Georgia from the days when Archaic Indians roamed the fertile Sautee-Nacoochee Valley until today. It is a unique view of the popular travel destination.
