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.

Now is your chance to contribute to one of the largest water quality databases in Iowa to monitor trends in the health of Scott County's watersheds! 

We will train volunteers to use lab equipment to test for pH, nitrogen, chloride, and phosphorus, among other parameters.  Some volunteers will also record insects and other wildlife living in the watersheds! 

Your important work will help Partners of Scott County Watersheds report impaired waterways to local governments and funding organizations to potentially install water quality improvement projects.
