Welcome to Deadwood


Settled illegally by eager gold rushers in the 1870s, Deadwood is now a National Historic Landmark. Its atmospheric streets are lined with gold-rush-era buildings lavishly restored with gambling dollars. Its storied past – made famous by the namesake HBO TV series – is easy to find, and there's eternal devotion to Wild Bill Hickok, who was shot in the back of the head here in 1876 while gambling.

Adams House Museum Admission

Visit: Adams HouseThe meticulously restored 1892 Victorian mansion with original contents chronicles Deadwood’s transition from a raucous mining camp into a prosperous and technologically rich city.  The home recounts the triumphs and tragedies of two of Deadwood's founding families.  The Queen Anne-style home was built by pioneer businessman Harris Franklin, complete with stained glass windows, thoroughly modern 19th century plumbing and electricity, hand-painted canvas wall coverings, and telephone service.   W.E. Adams purchased the home in 1920, and after his death in 1934, Adams’ second wife, Mary, closed the doors. The home sat silent for almost 60 years.  In 1998, under the direction of the City of Deadwood’s Historic Preservation Commission and the Adams Museum, historic preservation experts painstakingly restored the mansion to its former glory. The Adams House Gift Shop features a diverse selection of unique merchandise and specialty gifts. The Adams House is wheelchair-accessible on the first floor.

Trial of Jack McCall

Witness the infamous trial of the man who killed Wild Bill Hickok. The Trial of Jack McCall is an entertaining, family-friendly play where audience members may be chosen to participate as members of the jury during the trial. On August 2, 1876, Wild Bill Hickok was playing a poker game with his back to the door. Jack McCall, apparently resentful from losing several hands of poker the previous day, entered Nuttal and Mann's and shot Wild Bill in the back of the head, killing him instantly. McCall attempted to flee by running from the saloon and trying to steal a horse but was eventually found hiding and apprehended. This hour long play re-enacts the capture and trial of Jack McCall on Main Street in Deadwood six days a week.
