Stop by here for a quick visit to see Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane's grave sight. I am sure there are other really cool grave stones in the cemetary but we went for these two. It is worth the stop.

I am going to preface this by saying you should go there, it is worth it, but the walking is terrible. The cemetary is literally on the side of a mountainous hill and the walking paths are not all level or easy to maneuver. If you have someone in your travel party who is not conditioned for this type of... More

We came to deadwood in a class a motorhome, so we parked it in one of the parking lots downtown, and walked up to the cemetery. It was actually a really interesting walk and gave us a chance to get to know deadwood on a different level. It's uphill, so I wouldn't recommend it for those that find it difficult... More

This is a walk-through, free-will donation attraction. You pick up a map and description of the people and events that shaped Deadwood. It is a true lifespan of the settling of the Black Hills through the gold rush. We visit every couple years. It is built on the side of the hill, so you will need to be able to... More

The cemetery was beautiful. Well taken care of. They give you a map of the plots and explain the time frame from which each section is from. They also have plaques around the cemetery to give back story to certain head stones. It is on a very steep hill, so if you have a hard time getting around, this may... More

Very easy to find. Easy to find the historical graves of wild bill and clamity jane and others of the wild west days. Very easy to get nice photos of also. It sits up on the hill overlooking deadwood. Has great views overlooking deadwood.

This is really a very interesting place. Much history and not just outlaws. Got there very early and no attendant was on duty but no charge to go into a cemetery! They have a neat little gift shop and some interesting memorabilia.

A nice piece of history that you can explore on your own. The cemetary is on a hill and it takes a bit of walking to explore. The admission fee is very cheap and you can spend as much time as you would like. The main attraction is of course Wild Bill but the cemetary is very large and you... More

It is a very serine experience to see the grave site of Buffalo Bill Clamity Jane and other famous western people of the past. It takes you back in time in your mind to share them in history Mount Moriah is must to see. The cemetary on the side of the mountain is an excellent place for them to rest... More
