Visiting Reeder's Alley
Located at the base of Mount Helena, Reeder's Alley is a historic mining district located in the Southwest corner of historic downtown Helena. The Alley was built in the 1870s by a Pennsylvania brick and stone mason named Louis Reeder. Initially built to provide one room dwellings for area miners, today Reeder's Alley is home multiple businesses, offices, and non-profit organizations.
