My wife dragged me here. They charge admission to visit the cemetery to visit Wild Bill and Calamity Jane's burial spot. They have other people here on the flyer they give that are "famous" but I haven't heard of any of them. The only thing I enjoyed here was the view. It's amazing to look over the town and the...

The cemetery sits high above Deadwood. The scenery is beautiful and the history associated with the cemetery is fantastic. It was a beautiful and peaceful place to visit.

Be prepared to do a lot of walking! It's a definite workout, and if you have mobility issues, then this place is probably not for you. There is a $1 fee to enter. Wild Bill and Calamity Jane are the top attractions at this site; however, the history of the entire place is interesting. There are some great views, so... More

Mount Moriah is a beautiful cemetery; it stretches through time, guarded by tall shady trees on the hillside above Deadwood, the final resting place of citizens, pioneers and gunfighters. The Black Hills were a destination for pioneers and gold seekers, it's history well-documented in the nearby museums and this historic cemetery. Seth Bullock, Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok are... More

Worth the trip if you into looking at tombstones. Also has a great overlook of the city that is worth the $1 admission

It's worth seeing the graves on not only famous characters like Calamity Jane, but also the views. The drive up there is steep and there are historical homes along the way.

We had planned to spend a short time in the cemetery, and ended up spending a few hours. Of course, the main attraction is Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane graves, but there is so much else to see. The Civil War fallen, the young children graves, the view of Deadwood. It was a wonderful experience and one that I... More

Beautiful cemetery, difficult to navigate, but beautiful and worth a tour of it. Wild Bill and Calamity Jane's graves are easy to find. You need to be able to navigate stairs and steep climbs. We took the Kevin Costner's tour to the cemetery. It was worth it as the guide gave us more information than was available in the flyer.

The history is interesting. Don't pass it up but pay close attention to the signs cause I got lost and had to turn around. Its an uphill climb in your car right thought a neighborhood so don't be so surprised when you have to go past several house. Don't just go to see wild bill and Calamity Jane look at... More
