Travel back in time to 1864 when prospectors were anxiously seeking to strike it rich with the discovery of gold. Four such prospectors named the Four Georgians did just that in a gulch off Prickly Pear Creek that they named Last Chance Gulch and birthed the area we know as the state capital of Helena, Montana. That empty gulch quickly grew into a bustling city and the “Queen City of the Rockies” flourished. In 1875, Helena became the state capital and is a culturally rich city that has activities to appease every type of person. Last Chance Gulch has been transformed into Helena’s Main Street and is the foundation of a beautiful outdoor walking mall with unique boutiques and wonderful coffee shops and restaurants. In addition, Helena has spectacular buildings that display grand architecture of a historical time. Buildings that you will surely not want to miss include the St. Helena Cathedral which is an excellent example of Geometric Gothic Architecture. Another is the Moorish Revival Civic Center that towers over the downtown area. You will want to check out the Queen Anne style Original Governor’s Mansion with its twenty rooms that have all been restored with the elegance that was of that time period. The Montana State Capitol Building is breathtaking with numerous paintings of momentous Montana events. Helena offers much to do ranging from theaters, farmer’s markets, the symphony concerts, the fair, and their popular Alive@Five gatherings. There are art galleries and museums to visit, tons of eclectic shopping, local microbreweries, an epic trail system, and a busy local calendar to always allow for a good time and memory making. If you prefer outdoor activities you can travel a few miles to where the Missouri River flows through Holter Lake, Hauser Reservoir, and Canyon Ferry Reservoir. There are opportunities for fishing, swimming, boating, water-skiing, and more! With its scenic surrounding mountains and its rich history, Helena has something for everyone!
