Description
Deadwood has only one main street—all that space permits on the floor of Deadwood Gulch. The rest of the town clings to the steep sides of the canyon. Deadwood is filled with reminders of its lively past as a gold-rush boomtown. In the late 1800s it was a haven for gunfighters and gamblers like Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. Hickok was shot and killed in Deadwood during a poker game on Aug. 2, 1876.
Legalized limited-stakes gambling returned to Deadwood in 1989 as a source of income to spruce up the town, and many buildings have been restored to their original condition. Theodore Roosevelt Monument, on Mount Roosevelt, is 4.5 miles west off US 85.
