If you are a history buff you won't want to miss Cody's Old Trail Town! The buildings were taken apart, moved from their original locations and then reconstructed here...it is a real reminder of the tough western life! About 20 buildings to see. The cemetery has graves with the most famous being Jeremiah Johnson. Robert Redford who played Jeremiah in... More

Old Trail Town should not be missed when you are in Cody or on the way to Yellowstone National Park. It just oozes history from the buildings to the grave sites of some of the legendary characters of the Old West. There is nothing artificial or staged here - just the genuine article.

We took a group of 20 and they all thoroughly enjoyed it. It gives you a true feel of the real west, as it was lived by the pioneers and early residents. The collections are well displayed and fascinating. The staff is helpful and friendly. We would go again!

This site is a must see if you're visiting Cody. Theses are the actual buildings that significant characters actually resided in over the last 150 years. Folk like Butch Cassidy and the SunDance Kid. Curly, general Custers Scout etc

We're fans of the Old (and New) West, so this was a place we definitely planned to try anyway, as we headed out of Cody toward Yellowstone. But still, we were pleasantly surprised at how authentic it all was - from the grave sites of some real varmints, to that of Jeremiah "Liver Eating" Johnston (not Johnson!). In fact, we... More

If you are in Cody, perhaps on the way to Yellowstone, then Old Trail Town is well worth spending a couple of hours to visit. May not look much from the road, but the historic buildings are well preserved and presented. An interesting experience of the real Old West! You will not regret the stop.

Old Trail Town sits on the original townsite of Cody, WY. For a small entrance fee, visitors stroll through a town created from historic buildings (houses, businesses, bars, cabins) that have been carefully disassembled, moved, and reassembled from remote locations in Wyoming and Montana. At the far end are two areas of gravesites; Jeremiah Johnson is buried there. We spent... More

Although this is a relatively small attraction is was for me a highlight of our visit to Cody. There were more buildings here than I had expected and their authenticity and the photographs they contained certainly provided a glimpse of the old wild west. My husband loving having his photo taken at the front door of several cabins. The small... More

I really enjoyed looking at the old way of life. It had several stores and houses from 1800s that you could go into or look into. I find that stuff very interesting and I thought they did a good job of setting up the area. You enter the "town" and just walk from building to building looking at how it... More
