We entered the cemetery as a part of a tour. Being very interested in the old west it was interesting to hear about Calamity Jane and Wild Bill. There was a lot more to the cemetery than those two graves. The guide explained how the cemetery was setup, when it moved up the hill to the current location and about... More

We live in the neighborhood just below Mount Moriah, and I visit the cemetery pretty frequently in the spring and autumn. Summertime gets a little crazy with tourists flocking to the graves of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane, and the winter brings deep snow that can stick around for weeks under the shade of the tall ponderosas that grow...

We took a history tour of main street and the cemetery via a local's bus tour, I believe his name is Ike-- tour was very nice and just $10 per person. The cemetery is nice, well kept, and serves as the resting place for some very colorful characters from the "Old West." Look for Ike's bus, he brings the Mount... More

Historic tombstones along a paved walking path, hilly but take it slow & you see many headstones. A map handout helps guide your easy stroll.

The bus tour we took was open window and it was cold. The tour guide gave a great balance between education and fun points. He was dressed in the 1880/90 garb. You can drive there yourself and walk it but for $10 take one of the buss tours and get the true story and background on Wild Bill and Calamity... More

Food was good, difficult to get someone in a wheelchair up to the restaurant. They were having a reanactment and we were told to use the elevator we had to wait for that to end. That took 30 mins, anf when we fin as lly made it up, it was snither 30 min wait. Thankfully the food was good.

Our relatives, who live in Lead, brought us here to see graves of our ancestors. I know tourist enjoy coming here to see Wild Bill, Calamity Jane, Reverend Smith, Seth Bullock and maybe others but please be respectful, they aren't the only ones who are buried here.
