The gold rush brought a rowdier crowd into the area and as gold declined, the area experienced some violence and social problems. According to Helena, MT locals, an old woman who lived in Reeder’s Alley conned some of the miners out of their gold and then ruthlessly killed them. The woman was able to escape before the vigilantes could inflict justice on her.
