Reeder's Alley



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.

Reeder's Alley offers a unique year-round glimpse into Helena's past. The Alley is available to see at all hours of the day and the historic Pioneer Cabin is available for both guided and self guided tours throughout the day.

Enjoy a walking tour using the Reeder's Alley Story Map.

Pioneer Cabin tours have been suspended until further notice to protect against the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.
