Thad Kelly Courtyard

This charming pocket park is in the footprint of a former building. Four interpretive markers examine recruiting colored troops in Helena, why Freedmen chose to serve in the Union army, and USCT regiments that served in Helena. During the Spring and Summer, the courtyard hosts the monthly Second Saturdays beer garden. It is also a common venue for photo sessions, small weddings and parties.
