about us
Downtown Helena is a treasure of events, shopping, dining, lodging, services, and entertainment, offering unique experiences for everyone.

Helena was born when gold was discovered in Last Chance Gulch on July 14, 1864. The area takes its name from the ''Four Georgians,'' the miners that discovered the gold. Helena was their ''Last Chance'' to discover gold before heading home. The gulch is now Helena's Main Street and the state's only downtown, outdoor walking mall. Highlights of the gulch include unique shops, eateries, boutiques, coffee shops, and architectural masterpieces dating back to the late 19th century.
