Type:  Neighborhoods & Districts

Though today’s social climate in Jackson is nothing like it was for the characters of Kathryn Stockett’s novel, The Help, the book’s setting within the Greater Belhaven neighborhood still remains. On this self-guided tour, drive the streets of the Belhaven neighborhood and see the locations that inspired the backdrop for The Help’s 1963 Jackson scene. One of Mississippi’s bona fide historic neighborhoods, Great Belhaven, where Stockett was born and spent much of her childhood, is referenced in distinct passages in the book. Drawing a connection between the book, the neighborhood and the city that inspired it, this tour is not only for fans of Stockett’s novel, but also for history buffs who are interested in learning more about one of Mississippi’s most celebrated neighborhoods.
