Reeder's Alley is a time capsule to the earliest days of Helena as a settlement. It encompasses part of the original mining outpost at Last Chance Gulch (now there's a quintessential Old West name for you), and is named for Pennsylvania-born settler Louis Reeder responsible for many of the brick and stone buildings still studding the Alley. Also viewable in this historic district are a number of vintage log cabins, including one of the last remnants of Helena's once-significant "Chinatown": the shanty owned by local grocers the Yee Wau brothers. Reeder's Alley is also home to the Visit Helena Montana Visitor Center, a convenient, illuminating first stop for exploring the neighborhood.
