Helen Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 1 photos

The Helen post office is on the corner of a 90 degree bend in Maryland Route 5 between Mechanicsville and Leonardtown. Drunk drivers or those who lost control often run into it.

Helen got a post office in 1903. It was in the corner of the home and business of Joseph O. Hancock the first postmaster. He named the post office Helen after one of his daughters.
