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.

  • Final resting place of old time western notables such as Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane and others. Very well maintained and serene given the age of this cemetery. Historically significant and well worth a look around.
  • If you would like to pay your respects to the likes of old time folks like Wild Bill Hickock, Calamity Jane, or Seth Bullock, people who made Deadwood what it became, then visit this cemetery. Be respectful, it is a serenely peaceful place. When we went, there were deer everywhere, and they were cautious, but not afraid of us. It was beautiful, and after watching the show Deadwood, it was pretty awesome to say a few words to Calamity, she really was an amazing functioning alcoholic.
