    Tourist information center

    Train Depot and Adams Museum

    The old train depot has been turned in to a tourist information center. They have several nice displays of artifacts found and displays about the many fires that swept thru Deadwood. It is also a good place to park to walk up and down old main street. it has parking meters but it is cheaper than the parking ramp off of main street. There are also public restrooms there if needed.
    Behind the train depot is the Adams Musuem. Did not get to see it because it was closed on Mondays and it was after Labor Day when the offical tourist season is over.

    OK, it's schlocky, but you have to go to Mount Rushmore. In recent years, they have improved the facility and added a really good museum. Definitely worth the trip.
    Aw, c'mon - it is an awesome feat of engineering and truly breathtaking, regardless of your feelings about whether or not they should have done it.

    See Deadwood, even if you don't stay there. From that location, it's a day trip to Devil's Tower, Wy.,
    Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, Keystone, the Badlands, etc. This is the best of the bunch as far as accomodations, and it has its own local history as well.

    Stay in, or at least visit, Deadwood. Gambling is legal there, starting with 5-cent slots, and nothing is
    over $5. You can gamble all night on $20, and the town's history (Calamity Jane, Wild Bill Hickok, who
    was shot to death there) is great, and well presented. It makes other towns in the area pale by comparison,
    and offers more than just the tourity souvenirs other towns offer.
    Brick streets, original building exteriors (in most cases), and the whole town is a national historic monument.

    Don't forget to visit his resting place

    gravesites under construction (2001)

    Wild Bill was buried in Mt Moriah Cemetery just blocks from where he was shot in 1876. Calamity Jane was buried at her request not far from his side a quarter-century later.

    The memorials mark the fatal spot

    Wild Bill's memory wall

    According to the barhands, Wild Bill was shot near the present-day fireplace with his back to the wall. Calamity Jane was his admirer, but no more to Bill than a familiar associate.

    the fauna of the 1876 Black Hills

    Wild Bill was shot in a decor not unlike what you find hanging on the rafters and adorning the walls of the present #10 Saloon.
