Lots of history - really fascinating!

This was a great detour away from the casino-ridden downtown Deadwood. See the graves of Wild Bill and Calamity Jane, plus others. Get ready to walk - very hilly and extensive.

Unfortunately, since the advent of gambling here, the Old West feel of Deadwood is gone ... except for the cemetery. Look for the famous names. You won't disappointed.

While visiting Deadwood, I always tell people to check out this cemetery. It's one that holds a rich history with plenty of stones to visit. Plus the hike up to Seth Bullock's grave is a great workout!

You have to walk to get to the graves. Very hilly. Was very well kept. I enjoyed visiting the famous graves. They provide a list and map. Very easy to find graves. We had some deer visiting the graves with us.

Attended a meeting in Deadwood. Had some free time, so I drove to the cemetery. Found Hickok's grave along with Calamity Jane's. Great view looking down to Deadwood below. If you are going to Deadwood go on up the trail and walk through more frontier history there!

Interesting. Was great way to spend a morning prior to leaving town. We walked up from town. Be prepared for a vertical hike. Some may need to use a car. There is parking right at the gate

This is fun to see, but make sure you have a car. The hill is a killer! There's civil war soldiers, which is super cool, but the main attraction is Wild Bill Hickock and Clamity Jane graves.

It (Mt. Moriah Cemetery) is worth the trip to the top of “Boot Hill”. We did it as part of the “Deadwood Bus Tour”. The bus tour is filled with real corny jokes and commentary, but it was an experience. In the cemetery as a central attraction you find Calamity Jane buried next to Wild Bill Hickock, along with a...

It was a neat place to visit. There is a small gift shop / info center there and you can hike to see all sorts of old graves.
