Site of Wild Bill Hickok's Death

Visited Deadwood in June. The site of Wild Bill's death is in the basement of the Wild West Casino, approximately across the street from the # 10 Saloon. The # 10 Saloon was originally on that site. They have wax figures showing the card game and Wild Bill and several interpretative museum cases about the killing.
