Helena, New York - Part 1

I'd just watched the Tri-Town Winter Carnival parade and snowmobile races (previous posts) and, since I was in town already, decided to take a driving photo tour of the tiny village of Helena:

Helena is located at the confluence of the St. Regis and Deer Rivers. Most the houses look old and were built very close to the road:

This was house was especially close to the road and I wondered if the snow plows found it difficult there - especially this winter:

I thought this home was particularly interesting, with its gazebo and ship play-station. But I discovered, when I got home and took a closer look at the photo, that this was the Brasher Town Hall. Helena is located in the town of Brasher:

This home was built next to an old, double span bridge which was closed to traffic:

A nice front porch for summertime lemonade:

This was the historic bridge, now closed and replaced with a newer, safer bridge:

This false front building looked historic and reminded me of buildings from western towns:

And this wrap-around porch had a scenic view over the river. But there was yet more to see in Helena, and I'll post Part 2 tomorrow:
