About Historical Society of Helotes
In 1966, a few residents interested in preserving Helotes's history formed the Helotes Historical Society. The group was spearheaded by Lucy Perkins Brown, editor of the town newspaper, The Helotes Echo, and Wanda Terry, owner of the Hickory Hut Restaurant in Old Town Helotes. Brown died in 1988, and after Terry's death in 2005, a small group of dedicated volunteers kept the Society going. The organization was renamed the Historical Society of Helotes and achieved 501(c)3 tax-exempt status in 2010.
Today, the Society sponsors many events and educational activities to preserve the history of the area. One of our primary goals is the future realization of a museum and visitors' center in Old Town Helotes.
