The map provided of those interred at Mt Moriah was very helpful in seeing the final resting place of some of history's famous people, and important people of Deadwood. The cemetery was well preserved and enabled you to transcend to that time period. Great view...More

If you’re visiting Deadwood, I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t take the relatively short time to come and visit Mt. Moriah Cemetery with all of its interesting residents. We visited first thing and were the only people there. Armed with a map given to us...More

We enjoyed the cemetery. There was a gift shop and information office. Admission was inexpensive. The Cemetery is not that large so it is easy to see it all. There are deer and squirrels present. The historic graves were clearly marked.

My cousin brought her 2 big dogs, and they stayed in Deadwood and camped outside for 3 days, no incidents. You do have to be aware of local wide life at all times. Many places are pet friendly.
