UPDATE: This letterbox has been muggled:(
This letterbox is hidden is a unique historical location for the Helena area. The Grizzly Gulch Lime Kilns, these "ovens" were in operation from the 1860's-the early 1900's and produced the mortar used in most of the brick and stone buildings in the area at the time. To find the box, first find the "National Historical Register" Gold plaque, and READ IT! Learn something new, then look to your left as you face the plaque, you'll see a kiln a little separated from the other two on your right. Now go inside and explore, please be careful not to remove any stones from the area as it is nationaly protected property:) The letterbox is hidden just to the left of the original oven (you'll see a hole at the north end of the structure) Look for a loose dark colored stone, (3rd in from the oven wall) carefully remove the stone and the letterbox is hidden just behind it! Stamp in and date your find, and let me know you've found it. Be sure no one sees you (especially because the tour train passes this spot:) And be careful to cover box completely when you leave so it is not disturbed.
