Nestled on a mountainous plateau overlooking Deadwood's downtown core district is one of the premier historic cemeteries in Black Hills: Mount Moriah Cemetery. Established in 1878, this cemetery contains some of North America's most recognized Western legends, including James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok, Martha "Calamity Jane" Canary, Seth Bullock, John "Potato Creek Johnny" Perrett, and Henry Weston "Preacher" Smith. They represent a small portion of the more than 3,600 people buried in Mount Moriah whose memories have been carved, chiseled, and etched into the monuments within this cemetery. Deadwood's Mount Moriah Cemetery is a combination of historic and contemporary photographs chronicling the history of the cemetery and the stories of the individuals--both colorful and illustrious--who helped carve Deadwood into the annals of the American West.
