(1877-1925)

Helen Timmons Henderson, born in Missouri and
raised in Tennessee, was one of the first two
women elected to Virginia's General Assembly.
She and her husband moved to Council in 1911
when the Baptist State Mission Board of Virginia
recruited them to oversee the new Buchanan
Mission School. Local Democratic Party officials
encouraged Henderson to run for the House of
Delegates, and she was elected in Nov. 1923 to
represent Buchanan and Russell Counties. An
advocate for education and road improvements,
she was renominated in 1925 but died before the
fall election. Her daughter, Helen Ruth Henderson
won the seat in 1927.
