Inscription.  Built by Louis Reeder in the late 1860s thru 1882, Reeder's Alley stands as a memorial to the architecture of the 1870s Helena. Its importance lies not in its splendor, but its quaintness. It is one of Montana's oldest streets and one of her newest and most interesting restoration projects.
Reeder's Alley has survived the abuse of man and nature. Saved from urban renewal, the soft weathered brick shows its age. The re-grouted cracks and patchwork brick of these buildings are a testimonial to the many earthquakes "The Alley" has withstood over the years the greatest of which was the devastating quake of 1935
 
Erected by Montana Heritage Commission.
