The Songbird is centrally located in the downtown Beechwood Historic District of Helena, and reflects the character and charm that abounds throughout the sleepy Mississippi River town. The Songbird was named for its location nestled in the tree-tops with friendly birds, as well as the cultural significance that our region has contributed to American music.

Convenient for festivals!
There are many festivals in Downtown Helena. King Biscuit Blues Festival, Gospel Fest, the Warfield Concert Series, and more. Our house is within walking distance to all.

The Helena Museum, The Delta Cultural Center and Train Depot Museum, King Biscuit Time Radio Show, Fort Curtis, Freedom Park, Court Square Park, Battery C, the Confederate Cemetery, and architectural interests-such as one of the few cathedrals built by Charles Eames are all within walking distance.

There are gift shops and restaurants on Cherry Street, a short 4 blocks from our home.

We are a short 40 minutes drive to Clarksdale, Mississippi. Juke Joint Festival and Sunflower Festival are both great!

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire second floor of our home, the roof deck, the garden and the downstairs patio. The space is very private and great for business or pleasure. The patio grill is available upon request.

Other things to note
We have a dog named Clara, she is very sweet. We will introduce you to her when you arrive. She is 11ish years old; we adopted her from the Humane Society of the Delta when she was 2 or 3. She is never in the upstairs apartment.

Helena-West Helena, Arkansas, United States

We have, brick paved streets, old trees, historic homes and for those that understand the area in context to U.S. history we are bursting at the seams with cultural riches! The home is adjacent to the location of the Helena Courthouse which burned to the ground in 1830.

Misti is originally from Atlanta. Will is originally from Little Rock. Both have lived in different places and 10 years ago they moved from Brooklyn, NY to Historic Helena, Arkansas – home of the Blues! Helena hosts many music festivals throughout the year including blues, gospel, jazz, and more. What brought them to Helena? Will co-founded a non-profit graphic design firm called "Thrive" which works with local high school students to design projects that positively impact Helena. They use the latest technologies and design practices to form lasting relationships with students through thoughtful programming. Misti is an entrepreneur, artist and designer. A volunteer program director and co-creator (alongside hubby) at the Freeman Playground, she also commissions portraits, paints murals, works for Thrive on occasion and operates The Song Bird. Keep your eyes peeled around town for murals painted by Misti and her afterschool art students. Will and Misti both enjoy traveling, coincidentally meeting in Paris while traveling through Europe. Both enjoy gardening, cooking, running, target shooting, driftwood harvesting, oyster mushroom foraging, canoeing, making art and exploring with their dog Clara.
