    Must See
    If you are a history buff you have to stop at Mt Moriah. You'll see Wild Bill, Calamity Jane and many others. Note: If you want to see Seth Bullock, be prepared for a BIG hike. He has his own plot at the very top of the hill.

    Interesting
    I visited for the first time recently. There is parking outside and it cost $2 each entry. It was really interesting to see the graves of Calamity Jane and Wild Bill, however there was a tour bus in front and literally a crowd around the graves, and other visitors had to wait until the tour had departed. The cemetery has some great views of Deadwood and it is a peaceful spot and interesting to walk around. It is very 'hilly' however there is some seating to have a rest when required.

    Go up to Bullock
    It's a nice stop and a nice walk if the weather is pleasant. Restroom provided at the entrance. Don't try to walk up to the cemetery entrance from town unless you really like going uphill. There's some light uphill walking inside, unless you choose to go see the Seth & Marth Bullock gravesite as we did...I do recommend it for a different view. The Bullock grave is about 1/4 mile outside the main cemetery, all uphill, and the view from there is very good. Having researched it afterwards, I found the Bullock family plot was purchased in this location to get a view. Specifically, Bullock had completed earlier in 1919 a memorial to Teddy Roosevelt on a mountain 5 miles away, and his grave location was placed to have a view of this mountain. He died later in 1919 so you can see the connection. Anyway, it is a steep hike so wear good shoes, but it's worth it.

    This is a very old cemetery where they relocated Wild Bill Hickok and buried Calamity Jane next to him as that was her dying wish even though Bill didn't like her. It is located on a hill so the walk is uphill not hard but take your time as it is not the most even paths. Cool to see though.

    Lots of Great Monuments to Visit
    This is a cemetery, so first and foremost be respectful. The staff at the gate was friendly and engaged me in some small talk. There are a number of monuments of historical interest. The highlight for me was Seth Bullock's monument, which is a long hike from the base, but very worth the effort. There are some lovely views of Deadwood from several vantage points.

    A must for cemetery and history lovers
    I love this cemetery for the history, but forgot how challenging it can be to walk around. It sits on a hill, and you are at high altitude, so just be aware it's not for those with mobility or breathing issues. That being said, it's a fascinating place with history at nearly every stop. Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane's graves are a must see, and the first thing you get to after entering. Great place!

We enjoyed walking through the cemetery and reading the names and dates that these people lived. Imagining what their lives were like and thinking that each headstone hid a story. Some of the most memorable characters of the old west are buried here and standing at their grave sites was a very moving experience.

This was by far the best part of Deadwood. The cemetery is well taken care of which makes it appear newer, but if you look, you can still find older grave stones and such. It is a bit of a hike, but worth it. Especially the super cute marmots that are running around!

$2 to walk around a cemetery. The graves of Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane are not in their original locations, the walkway to view the headstone (not original) is to the side and not where the front of the headstone can be viewed. It is a very awkward viewing area. The cemetery map fails to show the 1st female doctor who was an important citizen especially for women and children of the area. Dr. Stanford is located in the South Potters Field - not even given decent burial consideration. When our 10 year old grandsons asked why she was not listed despite being an important citizen and well loved - there was no response by the employee other than he received that question frequently. We plan to write a letter requesting this person be recognized. This doctor did house calls between Wy and Deadwood - literally worked herself into a heart attack only to be dropped into a potters field and forgotten. Luckily someone was considerate enough to give her a headstone. Be aware of the Deadwood trolley tours that will drive you through the cemetery, others must walk. Nice overlook and some interesting headstones

By viewing the tombstones and grave markers, a visitor can get a real sense of the history and hardship experienced by the early residents of Deadwood. The cemetery also offers a scenic — but steep — hike that’s not to be missed if you are able and willing.

As historical cemeteries go this is one of the best. It is well laid out, the map/markers of the points of interest are well done and easy to find. There is a fair amount of hill walking so be prepared - but you will be rewarded with an amazing lesson in old west US history.

What an interesting cemetery. You see where Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane are buried. Also the grave of Samuel Bullock -- wow - that one was quite a hike (much to our teenage granddaughter's dismay on a hot day). But, when we got to the top, we were awarded the opportunity to see big horn sheep, so that helped to lighten the mood. And, the walk down was way easier! The gentleman at the cashier station was very nice and answered our questions as to when the last burial was, when the cemetery was sold out, etc. I asked him if it was "haunted", but he said he hadn't been there at night, so couldn't verify the rumors. Darn it! There is a great overlook of Deadwood as well. There is also plenty of parking and a gift shop, but we didn't stop in there.
