The tour bus is the way to go. The tour docent did a nice job explaining the history of the various characters and culture of Deadwood through the years

This was my second trip to Mount Moriah. I guess the only reason people visit this cemetery is the visit the grave of Wild Bill Hickok. When there some are surprised to find that Calamity Jane is buried next to him. The original marker was removed many years ago as it was just made of wood. The marker that is... More

While passing through Deadwood and Spearfish Canyon, you may as well stop by Mount Moriah Cemetery and pay your respects to Wild Bill and Calamity Jane. It's just a few blocks from the main street in Deadwood and they ask for a $1 donation per person.

We took a tour of Deadwood and the cemetery was included. What we saw and the history we learned we really enjoyed. Wish we had been able to go back to the cemetery and explore on our because there was so much more to see but we ran out of time!

Don't do this at the end of the day when you're very tired otherwise you won't get far. You can't take RV's or large cars up to the cemetary because the streets are very narrow and twisty. We walked - it took 20 minutes and was hard. (would have been easier in the morning, or mid afternoon). We found a... More

There are great photo opportunities if you walk around a bit, some of the fences have convenient opening for taking sneaky pictures, seek them out. The walk to Seth Bullock's grave is for the brave and stout of heart. And totally worth it. Excellent symbology throughout this site. Check out the visitors center to get an understanding of the makings... More

You just have to be careful as it is all uphill, starting with the drive up to the cemetery and the walk to the grave sites. I drove it but couldn't make the walk. My husband did and said it was worth the effort though.

Only $1.00 per person!!!! Great historical landmark, beautifully preserved. This is a great place to visit to reflect upon the history of the west. We really enjoyed the scenic overlook of Deadwood.

Small Cemetery, famous locals rest here. A must in Deadwood, doesn't take long. A little bit of a trek uphill to see Seth Bullocks family grave. Lots of children buried here.
