Event comments

Click on the 'View legacy listing' button above to activate the links in the Comments. The City of Helena is the state capital of Montana and the county seat of Lewis and Clark County. For suggestions on what else to do in Helena connect with Visit Helena. If you are into history, visit Helena As She Was. Helena was founded as a gold camp during the Montana gold rush, and established on October 30, 1864. Excavation for the Montana Capitol building began in 1896. The building was dedicated on July 4, 1902. There have been several expansions and renovations over the years. Main Street or Last Chance Gulch? Which Is It? The answer is: Both. Last Chance Gulch is the name of the actual gulch in which gold was discovered in 1864. The thoroughfare which was built down the Gulch was originally named Main Street. It remained that way for some 85 years, until July 20 1953, when acting Helena Mayor Dr. Amos R. Little, Jr. signed an ordinance officially changing the name of Main Street to Last Chance Gulch. Both names are still used locally for what was once the grand thoroughfare of Helena's business district. There is NO STARTBOX at the start location.
