Visit two distinctively different pieces of Deadwood history. Bits, pieces, and whole collections are preserved at the unique Adams Museum. Step back in time as you tour through the beautifully restored, Queen-Anne style mansion - The Historic Adams House. You don't want to miss either of these "must-see" attractions!
