The Bullock Hotel was named for Seth Bullock, the first sheriff of Deadwood. On the site of Bullock’s hardware store, which burned down in 1894, Bullock built a 63 room hotel. The Bullock later renovated to include a casino when Deadwood legalized gambling in 1989. This brought the room total down to 28. The first floor includes a casino, bar and restaurant. The second and third floors remain a hotel.
