Buffalo Bill Cody Homestead

Buffalo Bill Cody Homestead

The boyhood home of Buffalo Bill Cody, government Scout and Wild West Showman, is located in the broad valley of the Wapsipinicon River, a short 20 minute drive from I-80. The 1847 farmhouse, entered in the National Registry of Historic Places, was built by Isaac Cody, Buffalo Bill's father, of native limestone and contains walnut floors and trim.

The Homestead has been restored and furnished with items typical of the mid-19th century. Cody Homestead is nestled in scenic hillside overlooking the rich Iowa prairie where buffalo graze on the land surrounding the house. The Cody Homestead is air conditioned.

Features

Please join assistant naturalist, Becky Horton, and learn about a global Citizen Science Project called the Great Backyard Bird Count. This annual event is hosted by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society and occurs from February 12th -15th, 2016. During this program, you will learn how to get involved with this research project, the findings from last year’s event, and how you can conduct your own backyard bird count at home on February 14th and 15th. Bird watchers of all ages can participate in this project to create a real-time snapshot of where birds are. Please call in advance to register.

Due to infestations of Emerald Ash Borer, Out-Of-County firewood without proper IDALS labeling is NOT permitted. For more information speak with our park staff or visit: http://www.iowadnr.gov/forestry/shadetrees/eab.html
