On January 8, 1868, Thomas E. and Mary Helm, prominent members of First Presbyterian Church, donated this plot of land to African-Americans who had worshipped in the basement of First Baptist Church from 1835 to 1867. Mount Helm was built here in 1868 and named in honor of the church's benefactors. The congregation remained here until 1952, when the church relocated to 300 East Church Street. Marion Dunbar served as the first pastor of Mount Helm.
