The Montana History Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation that preserves the rich legacy of Montana’s past – one story, one community, one project at a time. We do this by granting funds to communities and organizations for history-related projects across the state of Montana. Thanks to the generosity of donors, we have been able to help communities preserve historic buildings, restore cemeteries and other sacred sites, collect oral histories, install new exhibits, and create history education programs.
Since 2012, the Montana History Foundation has granted over $12,100 to history projects in the Helena area. Projects have included restoring windows at the Montana Club, repairing graveside fences at the Silver City Cemetery, locating unmarked burials in the East Helena Cemetery, digitizing historic records at the City of Helena, stabilizing the Beehive Kiln at the Archie Bray Foundation, digitizing records at the Montana Historical Society and more.
