The Iowa boyhood home of Buffalo Bill Cody, Government Scout and Wild West Showman, is nestled in the scenic hillside overlooking the rich Iowa prairie where burros, buffalo, and longhorn cattle still graze. Built of native limestone by Buffalo Bill’s father Isaac Cody, the homestead, with its 1870 addition, is furnished with items typical of the mid-19th century. The Iowa Society owns the furnishings in the 1847 main room and the 1870 bedroom.
