Home of famed showman scout William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody, Buffalo Bill Ranch SHP at North Platte recaptures the life and career of the famed Pony Express rider, Army scout and buffalo hunter turned showman.
The house was built during the Cody's profitable venture, the Wild West Show, and money for development of the ranch and Cody's other interests was plentiful. No expense was spared in building and furnishing the ranch, and visitors will see many interesting features.
Buffalo Bill's Ranch, known as Scout's Rest, became a state historical park in 1965. Since then, the house and barn have been restored and a wealth of Cody memorabilia has been acquired and placed on display.
