Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane are buried in this historic cemetery. Very interesting to walk through and see all the old graves. A really good view of the town of Deadwood. Nice visitors center/gift shop located at the entrance.

This was a very cool visit to Mount Moriah. Prior to visiting Deadwood I had thoroughly enjoyed watching the "Deadwood" series on television (I know, I know, it wasn't completely accurate), but it got me very interested in the history of Deadwood. You can read book after book on the history of this area but it's nothing like actually setting... More

Where it not for the graves wild Bill and Clamity Jane it would be just another cemetery. It's always fun though to look at the dates on the tombstones.

We decided to walk up to the cemetery - much easier coming down :) It was a 95 degree day and pretty tiring as the road up is steep. The trolley would have been a better choice. Worthwhile though, and friendly people in the visitor centre and ticket kiosk. Good to see where Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane have ended... More

Very much enjoyed our visit to the cemetery. Lots of wonderful American history to see and learn. The $2 entry fee is well worth it. As other reviewers stated, don't be fixated on Wild Bill and Calamity. There are lots of others buried in the cemetery that contributed to Deadwood's history and our American history. Have your camera ready. The... More

When we're touring cities, we don't usually visit cemeteries but came here in part because I'd read there was a nice view back over the town of Deadwood. The view was partially obscured by trees and a little underwhelming. It seemed like most other folks were just navigating to the [recent] monument for Wild Bill Hickock, snapping their selfies, and... More

I took my daughter, grandaughter and great grandson here and they were so fascinated! My grandaughter didn't know the history and came away with a lot of knowledge of Deadwood and what the wild west was like. She really enjoyed it and my daughter was so thankful that this is one of the places I took them.

Interesting visit to old cemetery on the hill overlooking the town of Deadwood. Cool, shady, great views of the town. Visited and toured old grave sites, many from the late 1800's.
