      If you're one of those for whom no trip is complete without an hour or so contemplation of the memorials and headstones of an old graveyard, you're in for a treat here. Not only is Mount Moriah Cemetery the final resting place of James Butler Hickock (Wild Bill Hickock), Calamity Jane and numerous other western characters, it's also set an extremely picturesque location, on a steep wooded hillside.

      If you go:
      You'll notice a lot of children's graves; hundreds died in scarlet fever and diphtheria epidemics between 1878 and 1880.
