Begun in the early 1860's, Reeder's Alley was carefully constructed of native materials and brick, brought to the new mining camp from Fort Benton to the north.

The need for lodging in the new camp called Last Chance prompted Lewis Reeder to begin a series of small buildings at the extreme west end of what was known as 'Bridge Street.' As demand for lodging increased so did the size of the Alley. For nearly twenty years, Reeder continued to expand his hostelry. A series of devastating fires brought the demise of 'Bridge Street,' but the Alley was spared each time.

Today, Reeder's Alley is a restored miner's village now housing specialty shops, offices, a restaurant and a restored and furnished miner's cabin.

Directions: Reeder's Alley is located at 200 South Park Avenue in Helena.
