Cool enough to see Wild Bill & Calamity Jane's graves, appeared to have a cute gift shop. Would have liked to see more of the cemetary but got caught in a wild thunder and lightning rainstorm and had to book it for the car. 😂 RIP, Potato Creek Johnny!

My husband and I took the self guided tour of Mount Moriah cemetery in Deadwood, SD and we are so glad we did. The cemetery is well kept and we saw the graves of Calamity Jane and Buffalo Bill. The admission was just $1 per person and well worth the walk.

While the graves and gravestones of the many famous (and infamous) people were very interesting, there was lots of walking up and down to get to them, mostly on slanted pavement. Some steps. The items people left on some of the gravestones were quite remarkable.

Neat place to see with a lot of history. Very beautiful setting overlooking the Deadwood gulch. A little bit of a hike, but worth the visit if you like history.

Mount Moriah is a lovely place. When we visited in May the lilacs were in full bloom. If you can handle the hike, and it IS a hike, go to Seth Bullock's grave. There is a great view of Deadwood and the surrounding country from that point.

It is a big cemetery and still had snow when we visited so could not really walk around all of it. My husband made it around to more grave sites then I could with a sprained ankle. Lots of history and beautiful view of the town from up there. It is a must see for all, great history. Learn form... More

This cemetery is located to far to walk. The climb is steep even when you drive to the gate then walk. Elderly people need to avoid this attraction.

It is hard to find, but you can't miss it. Enjoyed our view of Bill Heacock and Calamity Jane. Don't forget to see it when you go to Deadwood.

This is where Calamity Jane and Wild Bill are buried. After watching the Deadwood series, then touring the town, the long drive up the mountain to Mount Moriah is a must!! One quick warning. There is a little walk up a pathway to get to their graves. It can be rather challenging for someone with a bad "anything"...lol. But I... More

It is a big cemetery, but since it was raining we only went to Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok's graves. They were near the entrance, so we didn't have far to walk.
