Travel Tips for North Platte

BUFFALO BILL CODY

by LoriPori

American Soldier - Bison Hunter - Showman - BUFFALO BILLE CODY ( Feb 26, 1846 - Jan. 10, 1917) was one of the most colorful figures of the American Old West and famous for the shows with Cowboy themes.
Cody put together a traveling show and in 1883, in the area of North Platte, he founded "Buffalo Bill's Wild West". Visitors to this spectacle could see feats of skill, staged races and sideshows. Many authentic Western personalities were part of the Show - e.g. Sitting bull and a band of twenty braves. Cody's headline performers included Annie Oakley and her husband Frank Butler, who put on shooting exhibitions. Buffalo Bill and his performers would re-enact the Riding of the Pony Express, Indian attacks on Wagon Trains and Stagecoach Robberies. The show typically ended with a dramatic re-enactment of Custer's Last Stand. Of course, Cody himself portrayed General Custer.
Profits from the show enabled him to purchase , in 1886, a 4,000 acre ranch near North Platte. Scout's Rest Ranch included an 18-room mansion and a large barn to house the show's livestock.
Cody is buried on Colorado's Lookout Mountain, in Golden, Colorado, on the edge of the Rocky Mountains and overlooking the Great Plains, where he once hunted Buffalo. The 30 Foot tall Image of Buffalo Bill has a sign underneath it which reads:
