Reeder's Alley is a very old part of Helena. That is a trappers cottage that has been preserved. The visitors center was a lot of help, particularly planning future trips. Sadly, they is not much else on Reeder's Alley.

An underwhelming walk up an old restored street-You do,get to see next door an original trappers cabin from the earliest days of Montana- makes it a worthwhile visit

Lots of things to look at, history to absorb and unique things to see. Helena is steeped in Gold Rush hisory, but there is also much to learn about the cattle history, cattle rustlers and whole other historical off shoots.

If you are visiting Helena, be sure and check out the historical Readers Alley. You will be glad you did. Helena has so much history. It's a great place to visit.

An important historical site built by a Bricklayer from California that helped change the Town. Simple, solid and it's own period flavor of construction..... quite interesting.

These beautiful little brick cottages were built for an upscale place for the miners to stay instead of makeshift cabins ,lean twos and tents.
