In 1864 a party of disheartened prospectors working over the present site of Helena, more or less halfway between Yellowstone and Glacier, decided to have one final dig along a likely-looking ravine - and struck lucky on what is now Last Chance Gulch, the town's attractive main street. More than $20 million of gold was extracted, but Helena retained an orderly appearance, set neatly at the foot of two rounded mountains with a fine view over the golden-brown Prickly Pear Valley. Over fifty successful prospectors remained here as millionaires, and their palatial residences still enhance the west side of town. Hollywood star Gary Cooper was born and brought up in this quintessentially Western town; actress Myrna Loy also lived here as a child, and is commemorated by the Myrna Loy Center for the Performing Arts at 15 N Ewing St (tel 406/443-0287)....
