Helen's House is just 1.5 miles from the city center. A 10 minute walk to the University of Dayton campus and a local city park. Woodland Cemetery and arboretum and a grocery store are a five minute walk from the house. It is close to many restaurants and dining facilities. You’ll love Helen's House. Built in 1900 with original woodwork intact and the 1930s wallpaper we offer a step back in time. Helen's House is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).
