Deadwood is known for its colorful history—some true, some fictional but immortalized by movies and books. Today’s Deadwood (named after the dead trees in the gulch) shares both aspects of that history. Drive down Main Street on real cobblestone and you’ll find casinos, saloons, and restaurants, but the brothels of yester year have been shut down. Many original buildings have been restored to look like historic Deadwood during the gold mining boom of the 1800’s. Deadwood’s historic Opera House still caters to the creative thespian in all of us. Visit the graves of such notables as “Wild Bill” Hickok, Calamity Jane and Seth Bullock at Mount Moriah Cemetery. Purchase Black Hills Gold jewelry in any of the quaint shops along Main Street, and stay in the famous Franklin Hotel where Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft laid their heads to sleep. Reserve your evening at Jake’s, Kevin Costner’s restaurant atop the Midnight Star, decorated to the theme of “Dances with Wolves”. Best of all, Rapid City SD Real Estate is less than an hour away! Come join the fun in family- friendly Deadwood!
