Welcome to the Alley
ABOUT THE ALLEY
Reeder's Alley is situated in the southwest corner of downtown Helena, the capitol of Montana. It is the oldest intact piece of early Helena. The property is a strong link to the beginnings of a settlement here, offering insights into the lives of miners, the Chinese influence, building techniques of the time, and life of the common men and women who came here seeking their fortune.
Today, Reeder's Alley is home to a great restaurant, caterer, a number of offices, non-profit organizations, and Visit Helena. Stop in and say hello when you walk through the alley.
In December 2000, Darrell and Kathy Gustin, then owners of Reeder's Alley, donated the Reeder's Alley properties to the Montana Heritage Commission. The Montana Heritage Commission and the State of Montana are very grateful to the Gustins for their generous gift, and for their wish to preserve historic Reeder's Alley into the future.
The buildings in Reeder's Alley are designated as an historic district listed in the National Register of Historic Places with the National Park Service.
