This is Helena

Helena exists at a crossroads between past and present, tame and untamed, mountainous wilderness and hometown warmth. A place where you can hike for miles without seeing a soul, stroll through our charming downtown, and enjoy breweries with breathtaking views—all in the same day.

Some say Helena has long been blessed. From the early roots of Blackfeet, Salish, Crow and Bannock tribes who found this land abundant with bison and natural resources—to the four lucky prospectors who, in their last efforts, struck gold in 1864—Helena is a place rich with history, beauty, and life.

We’re unexpected. Unfussy. Unspoiled. We don’t pretend to be anything we’re not, and we’re proud of who we are. But don’t take it from us. Come see for yourself.
