Pillow Thomason House

The Pillow Thompson House is a very impressive and recognizable home in Helena, Arkansas.  It was built in 1896 by Jerome Bonaparte Pillow and is one of the finest examples of Queen Anne architecture in the South and is available for tours to the general public. The house itself was designed by architect George Barber.


The house was donated to the Phillips Community College Foundation in 1992 by Josephine Thompson and her son. It was restored through a joint effort of the community and Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas.  Five generations of the Pillow family lived in the home before it was given to the college with many of the original furnishings remaining inside.


The Pillow Thompson house is available for meetings and board retreats.
