Mount Moriah Cemetery - Review
This is the final resting place of the pillars of Deadwood’s economic development. Legends of the Wild West lie buried here. Here the American Flag does not only fly from sunrise to sunset. It flies 24 hours. Such is the tradition. The cemetery has many sections to it- the potter’s field, where migrant settlers have been buried without stones or markers, The Jewish section, the Mass Grave site, the children’s section and the War section. Deadwood has a rich history and as you walk among the tombstones, you will feel a part of it. Highlights include:
- The Late Victorian Cemetery Set
- An interpretative video
- The Information Panels
- The Gift Shop

Mount Moriah Cemetery, Deadwood Reviews
You have heard of a lot of people that are buried here. Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, and other icons of the old west. On a hill above the town, it offers excellent views. A few parking spaces allow you to drive up. There is an admission fee. The friendly staff will direct you to your area of interest. It is also the final resting place of ordinary people from the town. Bit of a hike, but worth it.
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.
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.
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.
