Tea and Tour of the Historic Adams House
The meticulously restored 1892 Queen Anne-style home with original contents chronicles Deadwood’s transition from a raucous mining camp into a prosperous and technologically rich city. Discover the triumphs and tragedies of two of Deadwood’s founding families. The Victorian home was built by pioneer businessman Harris Franklin, complete with stained glass windows, thoroughly modern 19th century plumbing and electricity, hand-painted canvas wall coverings, and telephone service. W.E. Adams purchased the home in 1920, and after his death in 1934, Adams’ second wife Mary closed the doors. Visitors are treated to tea and cookies, only available through this tour. All tours require 48 hour advance reservations.
