    Deadwood History Center

    Favorite thing: One of your first stops should be at the Deadwood History and Information Center, located in the old train station on Main Street. Here you can view a film about the area, look at a few displays, and get information on activities from both the staff and the many free pamphlets you can pick up. One of the most valuable items I picked up here was a pamphlet that guided us on a historic walking tour of the town.

    For further information on Deadwood visit these web sites:

    www.cityofdeadwood.com

    Fondest memory: Eating at Jakes and exploring the history of Deadwood made this an enjoyable trip.

    Fire Damage regrowing

    Favorite thing: In 2002 Deadwood was evacuated because of a forest fire that burned many thousands of acres. They stopped the fire before it got to the town but it was touch and go. Now the trees are coming back. In five years it will be almost impossible to find where the fire was.
    In the front of the picture is a go kart track and mini golf course.

    Favorite thing: A must see in Deadwood is the reinactment of the shooting of Wild Bill and the trial of Jack McCall in this small and realistic theater. They even pick members of the audience for the jury,(making fun of men in shorts, etc. as they do). I have seen it about a dozen times or so over the years, and the actors may change but the quality doesn't.

    Fondest memory: The cemetary in Deadwood is called Boot Hill and is full of history. Just spend and hour or less taking the tour and you will love it!!

    Black Hills National Forest

    Favorite thing: This is on the road between Sturgis & Deadwood. It is part of the Black Hills National Forest. This is a very windy road.

    Walking On History

    Favorite thing: History has been preserved in Deadwood thanks to gambeling. Main Street is no parking but you can drive on it. Sometimes you might see the four legged mode of transportation.
