The Helena May main building
The Helena May main building (Chinese: 梅夫人婦女會主樓) is a declared monument of Hong Kong and a membership club located in the Central district on Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong. The present day building structure remains largely unchanged from its original building structure from 1914.
The building was built in 1914 and officially opened on 12 September 1916 by Lady May, daughter of Lieutenant General George Digby Barker, British Commanding Officer in China and Hong Kong from 1890 to 1895, as a respite for unaccompanied women arriving in Hong Kong. In 1891, Helena Barker married Sir Francis Henry May, who would become Governor of Hong Kong in 1912. 
In 1985, The Helena May started accepting the women of all nationalities as residents.
