Adams Museum and House
Welcome to the Adams Museum and House, an educational Deadwood sight that allows your group to travel back in time and see what life was like for one of the area’s first founders. In 1892 Horns and Anna Franklin decided to settle into Deadwood, making their home a Victorian, Queen Anne Style house. The historic preservation to this home is astounding, today the oak exterior and stain glass windows pristine, the inside sheet music, china, books, and medicines untouched.
A museum was created in 1930 in downtown Deadwood to preserve and educate Black Hills History, as well as specific Deadwood History. Within the museum, you can learn all about Potato Creek Johnny’s Gold Nugget, the mysterious Thoen Stone disc, and so much more about frontier life, gold mining and panning, and life in South Dakota.
