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.

A nice place to see. A steep walk but worth it. Wild Bill Hickok's and Calamity Jane's graves were easy to locate. A very scenic, serene place to visit.

When you buy the entrance you get the map with all the celebrities buried here. The walk to Seth Bullock's grave is uphill all the way. Seeing the whole cemetery with a baby and a stroller was bit of a challenge.

If you are in Deadwood, be sure to make the short drive to Mt. Moriah. An excellent self guided walking tour awaits you. See the graves of the Wild Bill and Calamity Jane, as well as the vast Potters Fields and Civil War sections. Be prepared for walking up steep hills. Wear good walking shoes. Lots of history here.

This place was just okay for me. I didn't dislike it, but it wasn't the highlight of my trip. Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane are buried there and you can visit their graves. The cemetery is old, and kind of peaceful, in an odd way. The cemetery is at the top of a hill, and you can see the... More

We walked from our hotel in town. Quite a steep trek on an extremely hot day, but the views from the top are spectacular. The cemetery is well kept and it is really interesting to walk round, you will need a map as there are lots of interesting facts about the cemetery and the people buried there. We were particularly... More
