Buffalo Bill Cody Homestead

The 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.
