Take me to a place “where the deer and the antelope play,” a place where the only thing connecting me to the cacophony of civilization is the Big Sky of the last best place. Montana’s vastness and rugged beauty drops the jaws of even the toughest critics, and here’s 22+ acres to roam like the buffalo once did or build a rustic cabin as your hidden hideaway. Imagine the enchanting memories you will fabricate as you lose yourself amongst the tall stand of pine trees and wild sounds as soft as the chirp of a cricket to the spine-tingling echo of a bugling elk. Load up your camper, atv, horse, or your ruck sack, and explore the enchanting area of territory that is all yours. Experience the anticipation of locking in your rifle sites on that trophy buck as you anxiously wait for movement camouflaged against the tree trunk that suspends your deer blind. In addition to the amazing property, the surrounding area is rich with opportunity for recreation. Helena is a short drive away for a night out to eat or hit up Holter Lake or Canyon Ferry for some fishing or boating. Snowmobile when white covers the ground or snowshoe for a winter wonderland experience. Then cozy up next to that crackling wood stove and nap the afternoon away. See it with your own eyes and make your dreams come alive! There is no access presently, but owners are working on getting an easement.
Travel back in time to 1864 when prospectors were anxiously seeking to strike it rich with the discovery of gold. Four such prospectors named the Four Georgians did just that in a gulch off Prickly Pear Creek that they named Last Chance Gulch and birthed the area we know as the state capital of Helena, Montana. That empty gulch quickly grew into a bustling city and the “Queen City of the Rockies” flourished. In 1875, Helena became the state capital and is a culturally rich city that has activities to appease every type of person. Last Chance Gulch has been transformed into Helena’s Main Street and is the foundation of a beautiful outdoor walking mall with unique boutiques and wonderful little coffee shops and restaurants. In addition, Helena has spectacular buildings that display grand architecture of a historical time. Buildings that you will surely not want to miss include the St. Helena Cathedral which is an excellent example of Geometric Gothic Architecture. Another is the Moorish Revival Civic Center that towers over the downtown area. You will wantto check out the Queen Anne style Original Governor’s Mansion with its twenty rooms that have all been restored with the elegance that was of that time period. The Montana State Capitol Building is breathtaking with numerous paintings of momentous Montana events. Helena offers much to do ranging from theaters, farmer’s markets, the symphony concerts, the fair, and the popular Alive@Five gatherings. There are art galleries and museums to visit, tons of eclectic shopping, local microbreweries, an epic trail system, and a busy local calendar to always allow for a good time and memory making. If you prefer outdoor activities you can travel few miles to where the Missouri River flows through Holter Lake, Hauser Reservoir, and Canyon Ferry Reservoir. With the scenic surrounding mountains and its rich history, Helena has something for everyone!
