I love cemeteries, there is something peaceful about them. However, that is not the case in Deadwood, their past is a scary and violent one, so the touchstone tell a story of these actions. Set on a hill over looking Deadwood, you will find graves of the famous and unfortunate. It doesn't take long to look around a realize our... More

Wonderful views on top of Deadwood at this cemetery full of history. If you like to exercise and can take a straight up hill walk. If not drive and enjoy short walk to graves of both. Very historical and informative. Only a dollar or donation.

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

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
