Deadwood, SD - Downtown View, 1888

A closeup view of the town of Deadwood, South Dakota in 1888. In 1875, a miner named John B. Pearson found gold in a narrow canyon in the Northern Black Hills. This canyon became known as "Deadwood Gulch," because of the many dead trees that lined the canyon walls. According to Colonel Richard I. Dodge, there was an estimated 800 white men mining the Hills at this time. Vintage photo restored by Kathy Weiser- Alexander.
