This was fairly interesting, but not a long stop. We were here as part of a bus tour, which was the only interesting thing about the bus tour.

Interesting how the cemetery is arranged and the depth of the graves in the area. We took a tour to the area that gave more in depth details.

We find that one of the best places for history is the Cemetary. Mount Moriah is rich in history and celebrity inhabitants.Make sure to wear good walking shoes, sunhats, water and sun screen. Tons of awesome photo ops.

I thought it was tacky to charge to get into a cemetery, but we paid and then walked up the very steep hill to the grave of Wild Bill and Calamity Jane. Their graves are enclosed by a gate and it was difficult to see...More

If you like history from the old west. This is a must see cemetery. It has some historic graves and they do a nice job keeping it clean.

The entire cemetery is on a hillside. The walkways can be steep, but much of it is paved, so perhaps a wheelchair could be used.

I haven't been in winter, but I can tell you the road to get up to the cemetery was a small winding road so if there is snow or ice, it would probably be treacherous. I've just moved to MT from the South and it seems that... More

We did not take it, but there is a tour bus that makes the trip there. However it is right in town, and there is plenty of free parking at the cemetery.
