Henry Elling

A lecture by Amy Grice

Henry Elling (1842-1900) was a banker in Virginia City, Montana, with extensive mercantile, mining, and ranching interests. Born in Prussia in the winter of 1842, Elling came to the United States in 1857. He left Denver in the summer of 1864 and took the Bear River Route and arrived in Virginia City on October 8th 1864. Elling became a banker in the 1870’s and eventually one of the wealthiest men in Montana.

Amy is the daughter of the late Mary and George Grice, who retired to Virginia City in 2001. She grew up in Connecticut, received her BA in Biology from Wellesley College in Massachusetts and then completed her veterinary education at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine. She earned her MBA with a concentration in Ethical Leadership from Marist College School of Management in 2014. After many years of being a summer visitor, Amy is thrilled to finally be a fulltime resident. In her free time, she enjoys exploring Montana’s back country on her horse.
