This is the final resting place of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane.

From the hall of records:
Wild Bill was originally buried in the Ingelside Cemetery, Deadwood's original graveyard. The graveyard filled quicklyand was in an area that could be better used for the constant influx ofsettlers to live on, so all the people buried there were moved up thehill to the Mount Moriah Cemetery in the 1880s.

Hickok is currently interred in a ten-foot (3 m)square plot at the Mount Moriah Cemetery, surrounded by a cast-ironfence with a U.S. flag flying nearby. A monument has since been builtthere. In accordance with her dying wish, Martha Jane Cannary, knownpopularly as Calamity Jane, was buried next to him. Potato CreekJohnny, a local Deadwood Celebrity from the late 1800's early 1900s isalso buried next to Wild Bill.
