About

Downtown Helena is situated in a steep gulch with parts of the city perched on surrounding hillsides. This picturesque setting opens up into a wide valley to the north. On the upper east side sits Montana’s State Capitol. Helena’s glorious past can be seen in its spectacular 19th-century mansions, historic Last Chance Gulch businesses and restored pioneer dwellings. The St. Helena Cathedral, an imposing edifice, overlooks the downtown area. Numerous old mines and settlements exist close by. Just eight miles from the Continental Divide, Helena is surrounded by mountains. The Missouri River flows nearby with several lakes within a short driving distance.
