There are 3,627 recorded burials in the Mount Moriah Cemetery which is also known as the Black Hills Boothill. It was established in 1878 and had a major restoration in the late 1990s. Three of the most famous graves are Wild Bill Hickcock, Calamity Jane...More

This stop is a must, if you're in Deadwood. A couple block drive up the hill to free parking. $2 admission and about an hour of your time to soak up a lot of history. Wild Bill and Calamity Jane are the most popular grave...More

Graves of about 3500 people - many famous from Old West. Nice views of town as cemetery is on top of gulch/hill. It takes about 1 hour to see the sites, $2 admission and free parking. It is the Boothill of the Black Hills.

We stayed at Deadwood and went to Mt Rushmore and sights surrounding. We visited Mount Moriah Cemetary where Wild Bill Hickok is buried. Fantastic history there and a must see if you go.

Drove to cemetery overlooking Deadwood and visited the graves of Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, Seth Bullock and others. It cost $2 per person but were provided with a site map and brochure which assisted in finding the graves.

I did a great deal of reading up on the history of Deadwood (OK and I also watched the TV show) before visiting on vacation. As a result, I knew I had to stop by and say hello to Wild Bill Hickock, Calamity Jane, and...More

History is largely erased and commercialized in downtown Deadwood. The hotel ghost tours are shoddy. The historical reenactments are meant to get your to buy another drink. One place to experience pure history is the Mt. Moriah Cemetary. You will likely be drawn here by...More

Hi, it is a bit of a climb, but it depends how fit your seniors are! We saw lots of older folks manage it if they took it slowly but on a hot day it might be a real challenge. There is a bus tour you can take which takes... More

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.
