More Info

Much of the Old Trail Town should be credited to archaeologist Bob Edgar who, after realizing that many of the historical buildings and relics were starting to disappear, gathered historical artefacts to be displayed on the West side of Cody. This was the area that Buffalo Bill originally surveyed as the first site for 'Cody City' in 1895. With sights as interesting as Curly's Cabin and John Johnston's grave the trail is a truly impressive re-creation of the original Cody. The largest collection of its kind in Wyoming it is absolutely unmissable for anyone visiting the area.
