Helena's historic Placer Hotel turns 100

Posted: Updated:

Helena's rich history dates back to 1864 after the Placer Gold Mines were discovered, and it is believed the Placer Hotel was funded by the gold underneath the building. Since Helena's golden days the Placer served as a meeting place for Legislature, lobbyists, and also a very popular venue for weddings and receptions.

Now the historic Placer Hotel turns 100 years old and the community wants to celebrate this building and everything it has meant for this community over the past 100 years. The Placer Condominium Association has designated Saturday, August 10th as Placer Day, and is throwing a birthday celebration for the building starting at 10 A.M. to 4 P.M.
