Like many cities in this region, Helena got its start thanks to the Gold Rush. In 1864, gold was discovered in an area that was known at the time as Last Chance Gulch. Many felt that this name was too undignified, so the residents decided to change it to Helena, which was the name of a township in Minnesota. Helena was named the capital of Montana Territory in 1875 and was allowed to keep this designation after Montana achieved statehood in 1889. Thanks to the area's mining boom, Helena grew to hold more millionaires per capita than anywhere else in the world. This led to the construction of many gorgeous houses, some of which you can still visit today. 

To learn more about the history of Helena, you can visit the Original Governor's Mansion, which is a Queen Anne mansion that housed nine Montana governors during their terms. Another excellent place to explore is the Montana State Capitol, which was built in 1902. Reeder's Alley is the oldest part of Helena, so you should check out this brick alleyway full of shops and a restaurant. 

If you're looking for a beautiful place to get out in nature near Helena, then you should visit Mount Helena City Park. Multiple trails take visitors past cliffs, through woodlands, and along ridges. You can even summit Mount Helena itself, which is nearly 5,500 feet above sea level.
