We really enjoyed going to this site. The cemetery itself is located on one of the most scenic areas of the city. Interesting Wild Bill folklore with a beautiful view!

Mt Mariah cemetery was a very educational experience. We took a tour of Deadwood wich included this cemetery and learned a great deal of information on historical western people. Some of which we had little knowledge of. We also saw animals that we usually don't see every day. Would surely recommend this cemetery to anyone who is interested in western... More

Many western celebrities are buried in this old cemetery. Tour guides are best able to point out their graves and explain their significance. We visited 14 yrs ago and had to step over tree roots on very uneven pathways between the graves. Improvements were made by adding some paved walkways. Much safer. The grand view of the town at the... More

Be prepared to walk up hill ! As a former funeral director, I love visiting cemeteries and this one had some cool features including a little museum area describing what some gravestone decorations represented. Be sure to stop in the museum/visitor center/store before walking the cemetery. Cost is $1 per person and $.50 for kids to get in the cemetery.... More

just a short drive from the centre of Deadwood. Beware the walk up from the car park is fairly short but steep. you will be rewarded with a view of the grave of the legendary Wild Bill Hickcock. the grave next door is that of Calamity Jane

When we went it was SO foggy, we couldn't see down the overlook. There is supposed to be a panoramic view of Deadwood and he surrounding area, but could see nothing! I'm sure on a clear day, the overlook is worth it to go up as this city is beautiful! The cemetery is very well kept and really pretty. I... More

Went up there to get pictures for a friend who loves the history around Deadwood and Wild Bill. Its a tough walk up the hill to get there. Very nice views from the grave yard looking down at the city.

Lovely place. May seem eerie to some but the history here is unbelievable. Beautifully maintained and for only $1 per person well worth the visit.

This is a neat place to go if you want to see the grave, but you have to walk, it is up hill and a place you want to see if you think you have seen a steep street...this one is steeper. You walk to the grave and have to pay to get in the gate.
