Deadwood

south dakota

Deadwood (pop. 1,830), city in the Black Hills of South Dakota; the seat of Lawrence County. A gold rush in 1876 brought a huge influx of prospectors to the area, many of whom settled in Deadwood Gulch, the site of present-day Deadwood. Colorful figures from the town's early days include Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, and Deadwood Dick.
