United Daughters of the Confederacy want Helena memorial fountain returned

HELENA — The Confederate Memorial Fountain that once stood in Helena’s Hill Park is currently in storage in an undisclosed location. Now, the group that originally donated it is asking to have it returned.

Jewel Wellborn, the president of the Margaret Howell Davis Hayes Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, sent an email to the Helena City Commission earlier this month. In it, she asked them to consider letting her group relocate the memorial.
