Deadwood, WY

A very interesting town. Boy, they sure do like their parking meters. Very surprised they didn't parking meters in the restrooms. There is no free parking in this town. Had to see the spot where Wild Bill Hitchcock was killed.

Looks like a nice area. I love the staircase wood in the lower left photo.
So, was he killed indoors or out?

Photo #4 marks the spot. It was the first time he sat at a table with his back to the door.

Hi Randy,

Wouldn't it be neat to have a rally in Cody?, or any of those areas?

Deadwood is an interesting town. But I think you mean SD, not WY. They also have an interesting museum. Prior to gambling coming to town in the early '80's it was a vital local community with many businesses. Now just casinos, tourist traps and parking meters.

I think so and I nominate you as the coordinator. Kidding. Actually being that close to the park would probably draw quite a few people.

My wife and I visited there about ten years ago. Yup, SD, as the others have said. We went out in late July or early August. I remember thinking "Gee these midwesterners sure have a lot of Harleys..." Went into the saloon and had a shot of wild turkey, the same one where Wild Bill bought it. Anyway, must have been 200 people in there and only me and Beth were NOT wearing black leather. Turned out the Sturgis rally was going on at the time and I just wasn't aware of it.

Way cool history there!
