Living in the city that Bill Built.

The scout statue

The Scout
A statue titled “Buffalo Bill – The Scout” by artist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney stands at the west end of Sheridan Avenue in Cody, Wy near the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. The Statue was erected in 1924 and is on the “National Register of Historic Places” The base for the statue was built Alex Halone, a stonemason from Thermopolis, Wyoming who designed the base to look like nearby Cedar Mountain. Buffalo Bill has chose Cedar Mountain to be his gravesite. After his death a through a protracted family and intrastate battle, Cody was buried (against his wishes” outside Golden Colorado at Lookout Mountain. Copyright by WyoJones. All rights reserved.

Buffalo Bill Cody gave his name to our city and his influence is still felt all around the city. I didn’t grow up in Cody, I grew up in Lovell. I love both places, but our return to Wyoming has definitely grown around the fun of living in the city that Bill built.

It’s a great place to visit and a great place to live! Have you heard of Buffalo Bill?

Perilously yours,

Pauline
