Helena is a nice town with lots of history. I enjoyed learning about the gold rush in 1864. The walk took us down Last Chance Gulch where the four miners made the strike. These are pictures from there.
Nearby is Reeder’s Alley. Louis Reeder was a brick mason and he built this area between 1873 and 1884.
Also nearby is the oldest surviving building in Helena. It was built by one of the four miners who discovered the gold in 1864. It has modern windows.
I enjoyed the flowers and birds along the walk route also.
There were several historical building including the Montana Capitol Building.
There were other murals and statues.
I really enjoyed St. Helena Cathedral.
The walk also went past the Myrna Loy Center. Myrna was a native of Helena, MT. She started out in silent pictures and then became a star when she played in “The Thin Man”.
