Established in 1989 by Jerry Metcalf, Harriett Meloy, Jean Weeks, Lynn Moon, Kathy Macefield, Dennis McCahon, Dick Wall, and others, LCCHS has maintained a History Center in Downtown Helena since 2007. The History Center is currently located at US Bank, 302 N. Last Chance Gulch office. The bank's interior is the perfect backdrop for history, with its original Shorty Shope murals and the Broadwater Hotel's "Boy with the Leaky Boot" fountain, ca. 1889. LCCHS is a non-profit 501(c)(3), and its goal is to establish a permanent local history center in Helena.
