Bavarian style architecture in Helen GA History

Helen wasn't always a Bavarian village. Community leaders decided to cope with the declining logging industry by reinventing Helen as a tourist spot -- fashioning the town into an Appalachian homage to a town in the German Alps. In 1969, the town mandated that all structures incorporate this Bavarian theme. As a result, even the Wendy's restaurant in town has Bavarian elements in its architecture. Today, Helen is unmistakeable as visitors approach the community on winding roads. The red tile roofs of Helen real estate invoke the Bavarian heritage that Helen's leaders decided to embrace decades ago.
