You've got to stop by this place. The history is so cool! Don't pass this by. A good reminder of how spoiled we are with modern conveniences and comforts. more »
Wow, this was a wonderful little sight seeing walk. It was labour day and nothing was open, unfortunately, but it is beautiful and fascinating to see the architecture from so long ago. I took lots of photos!
Really cool historical area. Reeder's Alley is situated in the southwest corner of downtown Helena, the capitol of Montana. It is the oldest intact piece of early Helena. The property is a strong link to the beginnings of a settlement here, offering insights into the lives of miners, the Chinese influence, building techniques of the time, and life of the common men and women who came here seeking their fortune.
