My son had a school project on Buffalo Bill. They staff spent time with him answering his questions and showing him around. Thanks!

“Mildly interesting attraction.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2011

Buffalo Bill, William F. Cody, lived in this house for a short while as a boy. His father built the original native limestone portion in 1847, the post-Cody frame addition is circa 1870. The home is jammed with period pieces, many supplied by the Colonial Dames of Iowa, none that I saw were connected to Cody. The provenance of items is questionable, the attendant was unhelpful.

$2 admission fee, open April 1 to November 1, the home is out in the country 20 minutes from Interstate 80. Cards and a few trinkets are for sale. Five bison graze in the adjoining field, sometimes a good distance away. I can only recommend the home to Buffalo Bill fanatics, Scott County residents, and people who can't get enough of mediocre 19th century artifacts.
