It's an odd thing to rate a cemetery, but okay, sure: 10 out of 10. The big draw for most will be James "Wild Bill" Hickok and Martha "Calamity Jane" Cannary, who are buried beside each other, but I'd definitely encourage everyone to take in the rest of the cemetery, which is very beautiful and full of rich history. It's... More

This is a cool place to visit. Just know that if you walk, this is a very steep climb from downtown.

For some, a visit to Mount Moriah will be a letdown. For those who appreciate the history and buried drama to be found in any cemetery, however, this cemetery is amazing. To begin with, just getting there is an experience. I have no idea of its altitude above Deadwood but the strain of your engine as you go up the... More

If you want the taste of olde worlde western town then this is one of the places to go see, ok there are souvenir shops now as tourism has ousted the gunslingers. The visit to the Cemetery is s must to see Clamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok graves along with other famous tombstones. There is also a Masonic theme... More

Interesting cemetery overlooking Deadwood. Lots of interesting people can be found here including Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane and Seth Bullock, although the latter is actually above the cemetery in his family plot( about 500 yds up a track from the back of main cemetery). Views all around are worth the climb on their own

I was somewhat disappointed . I thought that it would be a old cemetery , I did read that they did a 3 million dollar renovation and that renovation made it look like any other cemetery .

I grew up with the westerns on tv and in the movies. Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane were legends. The cemetery has a lot of history behind it. We took the Deadwood bus tour that took us up to the gravesites. the Deadwood tours takes you throughout the historic town of Deadwood. You can reserve tours in front of... More
