The chapter was organized on January 19, 1903, at Helena, by Organizing Regent, Elizabeth Barret. The group wanted to choose a name which would perpetuate the history of the city's origin and growth. A gold mine strike was found near where Helena is now located. It yielded such pure gold that it was named Oro Fino or fine gold.
The chapter has supported five State Regents, and has been very active in marking historical sites and preserving history. The chapter presented a gavel to the 18th State Conference held in Helena, and it has been used ever since to convene and adjourn the annual state sessions. Our ladies are very active in their support of Fort Harrison VA Hospital as well as naturalization ceremonies.
