Within walking distance of all the downtown action yet far enough to get away from it all. This great location is within one block of a major casino resort, amenities and the Trolley. After a day of seeing the sites you must enjoy the hot-tub in the backyard and cook in the BBQ Kitchen area or sit and watch the sunset over Historic Deadwood from the front yard.

Deadwood’s Famous Seth Bullock
Born in Amherstburg, Canada West (now Ontario), Seth Bullock is the son of a retired British Army Sergeant Major and hero, George Bullock. Bullock’s childhood was not a happy one. His father was a strict disciplinarian, known to beat young Seth for minor infractions. Bullock ran away first at age 13, then again at age 16 to Montana to live temporarily with his older sister, Jessie Bullock. By age 18, he had permanently left home.
In 1867, Bullock became a resident of Helena, Montana, where he unsuccessfully ran for the Territorial Legislature. He was subsequently elected as a Republican to the Territorial Senate, served in 1871 and 1872, and helped create Yellowstone National Park. In 1873, he was elected sheriff of Lewis and Clark County, Montana. During his tenure as sheriff, he killed his first man, Clell Watson.
In August 1876, Seth Bullock and Sol Star decided that an untapped market for hardware existed in the gold rush town of Deadwood, in the Dakota Territory. The two purchased a lot in Deadwood and set up shop there as the “Office of Star and Bullock, Auctioneers and Commission Merchants,” first in a tent and then a building.
Deadwood was a lawless, rowdy camp. The day after Bullock’s arrival, Wild Bill Hickok was murdered by Jack McCall. The demand for law enforcement grew following Hickok’s murder and Bullock’s background made him the logical choice for Deadwood’s first sheriff. However, he was not elected to the position, but rather was appointed by then Governor Pennington of Dakota Territory in March 1877. Bullock’s tenure as appointed sheriff lasted approximately nine months.
Bullock was appointed Marshal in 1905 by President Theodore Roosevelt and again in 1909 by President William Howard Taft.
