Historic Preservation

NOTICE:  Montana SHPO will be moving to new office space in Helena the week of September 8th!

The MT SHPO will now occupy the 2nd and 3rd floors of the soon to be NR-listed Old Board of Health Building behind the State Capitol 1301 East Lockey Avenue, Helena, MT 59620.


Welcome to the Montana State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) Website! SHPO works together with all Montanans to promote the preservation of our state's historic and cultural places. From 10,000-year-old archaeological sites to 100-year-old homestead farms, a lot of history has unfolded beneath the big Montana sky. We encourage people across the state to identify, document, recognize and protect the heritage sites of Montana, preserving our rich cultural landscape for generations to come.
