The inside of this home looks like the owner just stepped out. The house and contents were preserved. The house remained empty for 50 years. The interior was photographed before items were put into storage in the attic. When it was gifted to the city of Deadwood, the rooms were carefully redecorated with exquisite attention to detail. I enjoyed the house and the guide. Highly recommended especially if you are not interested in smoke filled gambling facilities.
The Adams Museum was the only GOOD thing in Deadwood. If you are not interested in gambling, drive through Deadwood and visit the museum and you will have seen the only interesting thing there. It is a shame that most of the historical buildings have been turned into casinos, the history is all but lost.
I am not against gambling, it has just been overdone in Deadwood!
The owner of this house closed it up one day and left it just as it was, for many, many years. This victorian home is beautiful and pretty much as it was in its heyday.The china, silver, books, decor, etc. are all original to the home.
This is the Adams House. A few blocks away, there is the Adams Museum, a museum full of history of Deadwood and of the indian culture throughout the area. Many interesting exhibits, takes a while to go through.
