One of our purposes of going to Deadwood was to see where the legendary Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane were laid to rest. We were not disappointed. The Cemetery, for the most part, is well maintained and well worth the $2 admission. It is...More

We stopped by the Mount Moriah Cemetery while on the Boot Hill bus tour. Got to see the graves of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane, along with other famous people from Deadwood.

We visited here over the Memorial Day Weekend. It was humbling and interesting to see all the various tombstones and the lives told on them. We saw Wild Bill Hickock, Calamity Jane, and Potato Creek Johnny's graves. The view from Seth Bullock's grave is amazing!...More

I'm not one for cemeteries because I find them sad and bereft of life. This cemetery is no different but it is beautiful and full of stories of the people who lived and died in Deadwood long ago. It is steep and rugged so wear...More

If you take anything away from my review or anyone else's here it is to make sure you are wearing proper footwear at the cemetery! Lots of VERY steep areas to walk up (down is easier, haha) and one of the highlights (outside of Bill...More

I thought the cemetery was just OK. We saw Wild Bill, Calamity Jane and Potato Creek Johnny's final resting places. The original tombstone of Wild Bill has been replaced with some monument type maker. I would have preferred to see the original. They charge $2...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.
Is this attraction accessible in the winter? (will be in Deadwood mid January)

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.
