A beautiful, well kept cemetery. Amazing to stand close to Calamity Jane and Wild Bill's graves and learn more of their story. The walk is worth it for the views too, you can see most of Deadwood from the graveyard although not everyone will manage the walk as it's quite a steep climb. Well worth the visit and if walking...

It was closed but you could proceed at your own risk. While Will Bill and Clamity Jane are up the road, the sheriff's grave is a hike. Especially in the winter.

Was truly a wonderful and surreal experience. There's so much of our American history in this part of the country. Everybody should make a point to visit!

The Mount Moriah Cemetery in the outskirts of Deadwood is fascination in the sense that it takes you back in the times when the immigrants settled in the mid-19th century. The cemetery is located on the hills above Deadwood and from the highest point offers a nice view over Deadwood. On the cemetery there is for example Calamity Jane, Wild... More

I love cemeteries - creepy, peaceful, pretty - all of them. This one was great! It was beautiful, up on the hill. It was cool to see the resting places of Wild Bill and Calamity Jane. Must see when in Deadwood!

I was there after the season and the cemetery was open for self-guided tours. Please remember this is a cemetery and visitors should conduct themselves in a respectful manner.

It was amazing coming here on my honeymoon always wanted to come here and see the grave of Wild Bill & Calamity Jane. I could have spent a whole day I here searching the history but sadly it was raining pretty hard when I visited but will be back to explore some more.

We love old cemeteries and the history of individuals that now populate the manicured terrain. Mt. Moriah is an exceptional example of a historic cemetery. The creative way plots have been established on this very steep terrain is quite something. But, then again, Deadwood did not have an abundance of flat terrain, and the dead had to go somewhere.
