We arrived at Mt. Moriah Cemetery late afternoon and the fall leaves were beautiful. Had a bit of an uphill walk, but enjoyed it and graves were well marked.

It is a fun stop. It was weird to see the graves of Wild Bill and Calamity Jane. Some of the grave markers are very fun to read. Very inexpensive and offers a look at years gone by.

.....Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane are both interred there. You just HAVE to see it. This location was included on our bus tour of Deadwood.

Whether you are a fan of the old west, the Deadwood tv show, or just an old cemetery, I'd suggest a visit to Mount Moriah. Wild Bill, Calamity Jane, Seth Bullock. What I found interesting is that Seth Bullock asked to be buried at the top so he could overlook Deadwood. It's a tough little walk up the hill but... More

If walking, be prepared for up hill. Lots of history. Free maps available. Easy access to the two main gravesites.

Well maintained. Unfortunately, because of our physical limitations, we couldn't see as much as we would have liked.

It probably would have been more informative if we took the tour but the buses weren't running the day we visited but we were told we could walk it on our own. Most people would find walking through a cemetery to be somewhat creepy but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

the kids weren't overly enthused to do this...but this is something that was on my list. We were there on a beautiful Fall day. The cemetery is quiet & peaceful and has great views overlooking Deadwood and surrounding area. We hiked up to see Seth Bullocks grave & toured the cemetery. If you are a history buff of Deadwood, there... More
