#1 of 40 in Historic Sites in Wyoming
Must see · Historic Site · Tourist Spot
See what the stomping grounds of Buffalo Bill Cody and Gen. Custer looked like at Old Trail Town, a reconstructed Old West setting. Although it appears the area was suddenly abandoned, the town was carefully constructed in the 1960s using antique materials collected from the region. Visit the memorial to legendary mountain man Liver-Eating Johnson, and explore the log cabin that belonged to Curly, a Crow Native American scout. Explore the other cabinlike buildings, which are decorated with artifacts to resemble town staples, such as a general store, living quarters, and a school room. A small fee gets you access to the grounds for a self-guided. Arrange your visit to Old Trail Town and discover more family-friendly attractions in Cody using our Cody journey planner.

  • My son loved it. Was very neat place to see. Although I will say I think the price is a little steep. $10 for adults is a little much. $5 for adults and maybe $2-3 for kids would be a better price. My mom and grandma chose not to go in because the price to enter was too mu h.
  • I loved seeing old trail town! I would definitely come back to Cody to see it again and see the added changes. Well worth it. I liked it much better than the five museum place. I wouldn't go back to that one.
