10. Department of Revenue warns of email scam
Helena - The Montana Department of Revenue is warning people about a new email scam that could potentially harm computer systems, and steal identities and financial information. These email messages target people in and out of state.
In 1864 the discovery of gold by four prospectors commonly referred to as the “Four Georgians”, started a mini-gold rush into the area. After three successful years of mining the region, these four gentlemen returned east with their fortunes secured. Soon after, the area began to see a wide variety of newcomers “westering” to seek their own fortunes. As the town grew in population, the name of Helena was eventually settled upon after much debate. Helena became the capital of Montana Territory in 1875, and after Montana gained statehood, Helena was named as state capital.

Helena Capital

Perhaps the most unique feature of Helena is its architecture. The State Capitol building is a fine example of Greek Renaissance architecture, and the murals inside depict Montana historical themes. There are still many splendid 19th-century mansions in perfect condition scattered around the city and the down town area has several original buildings still serving as city offices and new businesses. Among the most impressive structures remaining, the St. Helena Cathedral was constructed along the lines of a cathedral in Cologne, Germany and the Votive Church in Vienna. Its twin spires reach majestically 230 feet towards the heavens and the interior boasts gold leaf and mosaic windows extensively.
