Unfortunately we arrived to find the site closed for the season. You can get close enough to at least take a few photos. It looks well worth visiting though, we were very sad we couldn't look closer.

This is a collection of buildings (most historic) that have been moved to Cody from their original location. They are all "Old West" buildings. Saloons, livery stables, cabins. etc. Somewhere here there is a reference to literally scores of western historical events. The remains of Jeremiah Johnston (portrayed by Robert Redford) have been re-interred there. The building have been placed... More

When you step out onto the Wild West grounds of Wyoming, you're brought back to one of the greatest eras of American history. You can almost smell the gun smoke and hear the clatter of spurs as they wander down the dusty streets.

For a history buff, and a culture buff, this will be the greatest pleasure in the world. In completely remade cabins based off of real ones in history including the famed meeting place of the Hole in the Wall Gang. Its a relatively short visit and essentially gets repetitive after a few but it still doesn't diminish the incredible small... More

I love Ghost Towns. This ain't one. It is, however the next best thing. A collection of historic buildings and cabins from the Cody region laid out like a Western town, this attraction gives all the flavor of the Old West without leaving Cody. Easy to stop at on your way to Yellowstone, don't forget to visit the final resting... More

This was a great excursion- a walk back in time, with lots of interesting old things to photograph. If you're a western history buff, you'll love reading some of the stories. If you're an Instagrammer, you'll have a blast.

We absolutely loved this glance into a part of our heritage. They have relocated old western homes, businesses, school, and even a livery stable and built a western town like you would have seen 150 years ago. They also have a real graveyard where they have buried mountain men and famous legends of American history. It was awesome, and very... More
