Site of the “Treasure Run” Stage RobberyOutlaws haunted the Cheyenne - Deadwood Stage Line during the gold boom in Deadwood, Dakota Territory. By the end of 1877, gold seekers had mined more than ten million dollars worth of gold from the Black Hills, which the stage companies were desperate to protect. In 1877, the Cheyenne - Deadwood stage company purchased a "salamander" iron safe and installed it in one of their stages. The manufacturer's warranty claimed that it could not be opened in less than six days without knowledge of the combination. This specially outfitted stage made weekly "treasure runs" to Cheyenne.
