Discover Historical Deadwood While Celebrating Deadlands

Published On: May 11, 2021Categories: Events, News

Savage Expeditions combine unique Savage Worlds gaming experiences with real life adventures in locations rich with culture and history, and Expedition Deadwood 2021 is no different!

In addition to celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Deadlands and the release of the Welcome to Deadwood expansion for Doomtown, all our guests are encouraged to learn the history of this infamous town by exploring any or all of the following museums and exhibits. A combo pass featuring several of these destinations is included at no extra charge with your Expedition Deadwood badge:

⭐ The Adams Museum shines a light on Deadwood’s legends and outlaws, and chronicles the city’s progress and its notorious businesses. Explore the beautiful, unique natural history of the Black Hills and play in a virtual reality sandbox. The museum features a variety of challenging and fun hands-on activities for visitors of all ages.

⭐ The Days of ’76 Museum showcases Deadwood’s time-honored celebration and rodeo. A remarkable collection of pioneer, cowboy, and American Indian artifacts are on display, along with a unique firearms exhibit, and an extensive collection of carriages, wagons, and stagecoaches that explains the important story early frontier transportation played in settling Deadwood.

⭐ The Historic Adams House is a Queen Anne-style mansion built in 1892 that has been restored and left untouched for almost a century. The home is filled with original artifacts chronicling Deadwood’s transition from a raucous mining camp into a prosperous and technologically rich city. The historic home recounts the tragedies and triumphs of two of Deadwood’s founding families.

⭐ The Brothel Deadwood: Brothels were a fixture on the second story of several Deadwood Main Street buildings from 1876-1980. This aspect of Deadwood’s history, although difficult and uncomfortable to talk about, had a huge impact on the community. A series of eight rooms at 610 Main Street have been curated with period-appropriate furnishings to help transport the visitor to another era.

⭐ Mount Moriah Cemetery is the final resting place of western legends, murderers, madams, and pillars of Deadwood’s early economic development. Situated on a mountainous plateau overlooking Deadwood Gulch, the cemetery is more than just a graveyard: it offers visitors an opportunity to enjoy a Late Victorian cemetery set in the backdrop of the northern Black Hills. The paved roads in the cemetery provide an excellent opportunity to explore the site and the graves of Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, and Seth Bullock.

If you still need to register for this amazing event, secure your Expedition Deadwood Badge today! Please note that badges are free to kids and teens under 18, however some games and events will be adults-only, at GM discretion.

We look forward to seeing y’all in the “No Rules. No Regrets.” town of Deadwood, SD!
