HELENA BUILDINGS

Helena has some really gorgeous buildings as well as mansions.

IMG_6151 This first one is the Power Block Building which was built in 1888. Take a good look at the picture and see if you can tell me what makes it architecturally interesting.

The second building is the Atlas Block Building. Built in 1889 the green salamanders represent their escape from the fires that destroyed the wooden buildings in downtown Helena. IMG_6156

This is the Helena Civic Center which was originally a Shrine Temple built in 1920.civic center masonicThis was the Masonic Lodge which has been converted into apartments. My sister lived on the second floor of this building for several years.
