Deadwood Pioneer: A Face from the Past maps the work of the archeologists, historians, and forensic experts who have pieced together the short life of a man whose skeletal remains were unearthed near what is now the intersection of Jackson and Taylor streets. Buried in an unmarked grave, the remains were left behind when the original cemetery was relocated to the hills above Deadwood in 1878. The remains were reinterred at Deadwood’s Mount Moriah Cemetery in a 2016 ceremony. Using contemporaneous records combined with the latest technology and drawing on the expertise of professionals nationwide, the documentary seeks to understand the life and times of this unknown Deadwood Pioneer. Production was made possible by the City of Deadwood, Deadwood Historic Preservation, the South Dakota Dental Foundation, and your membership in Friends of SDPB.
