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.

Join Naturalist Becky Baugh for a workshop on monarch butterflies! During this program, participants will learn about monarch butterflies and why their population is declining. We will help the monarchs by making seed bombs which you will take home with you at the end of the program. We will also take a hike to the prairie and catch monarch butterflies to collect data for Project Monarch Health and Monarch Watch. It will be family fun for everyone!
