Create an itinerary including Mount Moriah Cemetery
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.
