We offer visitors a unique opportunity to experience first-hand our rich Western heritage. Voted "Best Tourist Attraction and Historical Site" by True West Magazine. Old Trail Town is one of Cody, Wyoming's most popular family friendly sites and is conveniently located on the road to Yellowstone National Park.


On this site in 1895, Western scout and showman William F. ("Buffalo Bill") Cody laid out the original townsite of Cody, Wyoming, which was named in his honor.

Today Old Trail Town preserves the lifestyle and history of the Frontier West through a rare collection of authentic structures and furnishings. From remote locations in Wyoming and Montana these historic buildings were carefully disassembled, moved and reassembled here at Old Trail Town by Western historian Bob Edgar and friends.

Located here are thousands of historic artifacts from the Old West and grave sites of several notable Western figures. Among them is the grave of mountain man John Johnston, who was portrayed by the actor Robert Redford in the 1972 motion picture "Jeremiah Johnson."

Here, too, are original cabins used by Old West outlaws Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and a Wyoming saloon frequented by Cassidy's "Hole-in-the-Wall Gang." On this site is the log cabin home of "Curley" a Crow Indian army scout who helped guide Lt Col. George A. Custer and the U.S. 7th Cavalry to the battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876. Old Trail Town exists today as a memorial to the uniquely American experience known throughout the world as "the Old West."

 This isn't my first visit to Old Trail Town. I always enjoy going there. I love things involving the old west and Old Trail Town keeps it alive. You get a little history lesson when you inspect the different buildings there. I was happy to make it there this year (2017), being it is the 50th Anniversary. The people that run the place are very nice people indeed. I hope it remains around for a very long time. A must stop if visiting Cody.
