Mount Moriah Cemetery, Deadwood

Notable characters of the Wild West and historical figures of Deadwood are buried in Mount Moriah Cemetery. Established in 1878, the cemetery's most famous graves include those of Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, and Potato Creek Johnny. Originally spread out over two cemeteries, Ingleside and a catholic cemetery, the bodies were moved to the current location in the 1880s to make space for housing on the former Ingleside location. To this day, homeowners in Ingleside occasionally find human remains on their property. You can pick up information on the people buried here at the visitor center.

  • It's a very cool graveyard. So much history there. It is a steep walk, but I think it's worth the view, as it looks over Deadwood.
  • Western History Buffs will love this place. Don't drive your motorhome to the cemetery for the hillsides are at least a 10 grade climb. There is plenty of parking in Deadwood.
  • We spent a afternoon visiting the burial sites of Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane and Seth Bullock. To reach Seth Bullock's final resting place, you will have quite a hike up hill. The cemetery was well-kept and the employees at the shop we're very kind.
  • I came here for one reason, Wild Bill Hickok's grave. I was not disappointed. It's a steep walk up to the cemetery from the parking area.
  • very well maintained several sections including Civil War of the trends section Wild Bill Hickok Calamity Jane and several other local prominent individuals pleasant walk restful good to get away from the crowds.
