Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for kids 3-12, so for the price, it's a great place to stop, stretch your legs, and see a little history. You have to pay the state park entry fee, though, too ($5, we bought an annual pass for all parks). The tour of the house and the grounds is self-guided.
Cody had many gifts from his Native American friends. In his youth, he was a pony express rider, trapper, buffalo hunter, trail guide, and Indian Relations specialist. For a great deal of that time, he and the Indians were respected adversaries, but as time went on he became more protective of their property rights and treatment. Many consented to be in the his Wild West Show out of their respect for him and to show the world their culture and history.
Out back is a cabin Cody and some of his partners used in their trapping, hunting, and guide days. It was transported from its original location.
The stables were immense, but the original land of Scout's Rest was very large, so they surely needed the horsepower.
Posters from his European tours included pictures of the royalty who had patronized his show. One poster for the ladies and one for the gentlemen, the celebrity endorsements of the day.
Outdoors they keep some young bison in a pen. These were still shedding their winter coats.
Tell 'em we sent ya!
