Welcome to the beautiful 

city of Helena!

It is my honor and great 

privilege to welcome 

you to the capital city of 

Montana. We take pride 

in our small town and 

the strong community 

bonds that make Helena 

such an enjoyable place 

to live or visit! 

Helena was founded in 1864 as a gold camp during 

the Montana gold rush. Our Montana Historical 

Museum offers you a look at the rich history this 

city provides. Take a stroll through the walking mall 

downtown and stop by some of Helena’s favorite 

shops and restaurants. 

Some of Helena’s greatest attributes are the access to 

public lands and the breathtaking outdoor scenery 

that so many of our residents engage with every day. 

Mount Helena offers some exquisite trails for those 

who enjoy hiking or backpacking. 

I genuinely hope you enjoy your visit here! For those 

of you that love Helena as much as I do and decide 

to stay, I’m confident that it will not take long for 

Helena to feel like home. Again, welcome and allow 

Helena to make some of your fondest memories.

Sincerely,

Wilmot J. Collins, Mayor
