"One sure way to lose another woman's friendship is to try to improve her flower arrangements." ~ Marcelene Cox
"Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Historic Fairview Inn was not only a film site for "The Help," movie, but also where many of the stars stayed during filming. It is also mentioned in the novel on page 148. Kathryn Stockett, a native of Jackson, used the Greater Belhaven neighborhood extensively for the setting of her bestselling novel, "The Help," published in 2009. Greater Belhaven is one of Mississippi’s most intact historic neighborhoods. It is where Stockett was born, where her grandparents lived, and where she spent a great deal of time in her childhood. The story of "The Help" takes place in 1963, at the height of the Civil Rights struggle in Mississippi. Scenes are set in downtown Jackson and other neighborhoods as well as Greater Belhaven."
"This was the home of William J. Simmons, founder of the White Citizens Council of Jackson. It was opened as a bed and breakfast by the Simmons family. The house has the graceful architecture and landscaping of early Jackson. Today, it is a successful and popular inn, owned by Peter and Tamar Sharp, featuring gourmet dining for an enthusiastic multi-ethnic clientele."
