Adams Museum and House [SD]
The Adams Museum and House seeks to preserve and share the history of Deadwood, South Dakota and the surrounding Black Hills. The Adams Museum collections include folk art, Lakota artifacts, and Wild Bill Hickok's (1837-1876) gun, among other items. Other figures represented in the collections include Calamity Jane (1852-1903) and Deadwood Dick, a fictional character whose name was used by a variety of individuals. The Adams House is a 1892 Queen Anne Victorian, abandoned entirely furnished in 1934, which now functions as a circa 1900 house museum.
The museum offers three floors of exhibits and self-guided tours. The house offers period rooms and an orientation exhibit.
