COVID-19 Updates for Deadwood History, Inc.

DEADWOOD – The Adams Museum and the Days of '76 Museum will be closed until further notice. This decision was made following regulations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the federal government, as well as Governor Noem’s office. We will reassess this temporary closure on a weekly basis. The Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center (HARCC) is also temporarily closed, but Deadwood History staff can be reached at 605-722-4800.

Deadwood History, Inc. will temporarily suspend all public events and programming including Preservation Thursday: Homestake Water System Past and Present with Curt Betcher on Thursday, March 19, 2020, at the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center.

Nothing is more important than the safety and health of our community, visitors, staff, and volunteers. Thank you for understanding these very difficult decisions during these unprecedented times. For more information, please call 605-722-4800.


We inspire the global community by preserving and celebrating the cultural heritage of Deadwood and the Black Hills in the context of the American West through exceptional exhibits, innovative educational programs, and access to extensive collections in unique settings.
