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.

Cemetery with old west historical icons Wild Billy Hickok and Calamity Jane with a nice view of the town of Deadwood. You can catch a tour bus from town if you don't want to drive which is pretty cheep. In my group of visitors I overhead a few complain about the $2.00 admin fee but in my mind its a fair cost considering most cemeteries are not visited by tourists which increases maintenance and staffing. if anything $2.00 seemed more then reasonable in my mind.
Nice place to stop. Offers some great views of the city. Make sure to stop by Bullocks grave. It’s a little hike up but still cool.
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.
So much is made of Wild Bill Hickok in Deadwood, even in this cemetery which you have to pay $2 to visit! By all accounts Wild Bill was only in the town a few days? Surely the real hero was Seth Bullock, yet he hardly gets a mention!!! Let alone a prime spot in the cemetery.
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.
