Buffalo Bill Boyhood Home


Read All About It:

The Buffalo Bill Boyhood Home is a two story frame house containing two rooms downstairs and two room upstairs. The house was built by Issac Cody, father of William Frederick Cody (Buffalo Bill) at LeClere, Iowa in 1841. This boyhood home of Buffalo Bill was brought to Cody in 1933 through the efforts of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad. It was placed adjacent to the Railroad's Burlington Inn as a point of interest to the Inn's guests. In 1947 the Railroad gave the home to the Buffalo Bill Memorial Association. It was again moved to a new location near the Buffalo Bill Museum. Then in 1968 the Memorial Association sold its museum building and moved into its new Buffalo Bill Historical Center. In 1970 Buffalo Bill's Boyhood Home was moved again adjacent to the Historical Center.
