Very well maintained old cemetery with some famous western names. Also has unknowns with beautiful stones. Great view of deadwood at the far end of the cemetery. It's all on a hill so be sure and wear your walking shoes

Enjoyed the walk and experiencing the history. Graveyards tend to creep me out, but this was o.k. Follow the map they give you at the ticket booth. If you have enough left in you to climb to Seth Bullock's resting pkace, kudos to you!

Would recommend a cooler day if possible. If you're into local history, this is one of the places to check out.

Whether you visit taking a tour or not it's a interesting visit. You get to see the burial site of Wild Bill, Calamity Jane and Potato Johnny. Beautiful views from there also

We visited as part of the bus tour around town. It was really interesting to learn the history of the cemetery itself, in addition to that of the variety of people buried there.

Kids, aged 6 and 7, were bored. Hubby and I enjoyed just walking around and seeing the cemetery. Inexpensive.

Mount Moriah Cemetery is located above the town of Deadwood. Wild Bill Hickok is buried in a prominent location, with Calamity Jane's grave nearby. You cannot get right up to either grave. Easily viewed.

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.
