I went to the mt. Moriah cemetery as part of Kevin Costners Original Deadwood tour. The cemetery is very unique in that it is built up into the side of a hill. The guide said this was done according to the practices of free masons....More

A great walk around. The guide is very informative. I went to wild bill and calamity Jane's first then did the climb to Seth Bullocks from there it is all down hill. The views of deadwood are amazing.

Just your typical cemetery, but with some famous people...Wild Bill and Calamity Jane. The view of Deadwood is quite amazing...so it is worth checking it out.

This cemetery is well taken care of! No litter anywhere. Be sure to bring your walking shoes. It's a long hike and a lot of it is an uphill climb. The gift shop there holds local goods and cute knick-knacks.

The view of Deadwood is worth the walk up. Otherwise it is just a cemetery, similar to many thousands around the country. The walk up the hill was good for heart and soul. The $2 entry fee is just about ok. It helps to maintain...More

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.
