While visiting a cemetery might not be on your things to do, please visit this one. The history is great. Some of the greats we grew up hearing stories about, Will Bill and Calamity Jane are just a few. To visit their graves is a step back in history. For my brothers who travel to the east, look for the... More

My wife and I loved our visit to the Mount Moriah Cemetery. Take the time to read the paper that is given to you at the visitor center to really get the most out of your visit here. This gives you the details and history of the individuals buried here. The tribute to the veterans is awesome as well. We... More

If you plan to visit this location and have any sort of disability, consider taking a bus tour that starts from downtown Deadwood. The terrain is steep and almost impossible to navigate. It is not ADA friendly whatsoever. I had visited in year's past and did such and the driver provided great information. On this trip accompanied by a disabled... More

...........BECAUSE it's about the only thing to see in Deadwood. And, see it by taking an entertaining bus tour. We took the "Original Deadwood Tours" and the driver/guide provided a comedic tour - entertaining and funny. No fee to see the cemetery unless you take a bus tour. But, it's a helluva walk from the town center up-the stairs (seemed... More

We enjoyed the visitors center at Mount Moriah in Deadwood, SD The gentleman at the counter was very friendly and they had a lot of interesting items. This cemetery is best viewed by the trolley. It is a steep climb to Wild Bills grave site.

Take the bus with Wild Bill, most enjoyable. They are dressed in period costume and it is interesting to see the old grave markers

This is a beautifully kept cemetery. The history associated is very interesting. It is a nice walk and good views from the top. It is too bad the tour buses are allowed to drive through.

The tour bus is the way to go. The tour docent did a nice job explaining the history of the various characters and culture of Deadwood through the years

This was my second trip to Mount Moriah. I guess the only reason people visit this cemetery is the visit the grave of Wild Bill Hickok. When there some are surprised to find that Calamity Jane is buried next to him. The original marker was removed many years ago as it was just made of wood. The marker that is... More
