This is a really cool cemetary, complete with visitors center. Calamity Jane, Wild Bill Hickok and other famous old west grave sites are worth the time to visit. Very hilly, but well maintained and walkways are very good. A must see in Deadwood.

The graves of Wild Bill, Calamity Jane and their buddy were worth the uphill walk. The trinkets placed on the gravesites were quite amusing. The staff members are very nice. I was hunting for some geocaches and they were helpful.

Great views from the cemetery. Wild Bill and Calamity Jane are buried here. We found beautiful wildlife in the cemetery along with the history.

I lived in a small house right outside the entrance to Mouth Moriah Cemetery for a year in the 1990s. During the summer months, there is a steady stream of people wandering through the gates and up the pathway to visit the final resting place of Wild Bill Hickok. Like many birthplace and burial sites of famous people, visitors here... More

When you purchase your ticket to go into the cemetery they give you a map so you can find all the famous gravesites. Most of them are easy to find however Seth bullock a little bit of a hike outside the cemetery and you go up under road to get to it. You can get very great views from the... More

Grave decisions needed to be made and most of them where made by the occupants of this cemetry - whether it was for good or bad!!! Occupants include Calamiity Jane, Seth Bullock and Wild Bill Hiccok. But take some time to walk amongst and graves (map and guide available) and glimpse snapshots from a time that seems so removed from... More

Peaceful, treed cemetery on Mt Moriah just outside of town. Historically interesting. Even the local white tail deer seemed to enjoy its charms.

We took a tour, since I did not want to bother with looking up the cemetery and looking up parking. The tour did not teach us anything we did not already know, but it was entertaining nevertheless, thanks to the witty guide. Wild Bill Hickok (shot in the back by an assassin), Calamity Jane (ever wonder where her nickname came... More

The Mt. Moriah Cemetery, located in Deadwood, South Dakota, is the final resting place of two of the most famous icons of the Wild West, Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. You can pick up a Walking Tour Guide of the cemetery, which outlines several "famous" headstones in the park. You will pay an entrance fee of $1. Starting out... More

Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane are buried side by side here. Nice well maintained cemetery with a good gift shop and friendly staff. On a pretty steep hillside. Nice place to visit.
