Cody

Cody (kōˈdē), city (2020 pop. 10,028), seat of Park co., NW Wyo., on the Shoshone River in a sheep, cattle, and irrigated farm area; founded and inc. 1901 by William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill). It is a tourist resort at the eastern entrance to Yellowstone National Park, with dude ranches and a frontier town flavor. Manufactures include concrete and gypsum and lumber products. Cody also is headquarters for the Shoshone National Forest. Of interest are the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, with museums on Buffalo Bill, the Plains Indians, firearms, the region's natural history, and Western art; and an annual rodeo. Nearby is Heart Mountain, the site during World War II of a relocation center for Japanese Americans; an interpretative learning center is now there. Shoshone Canyon and the Shoshone project are also in the area.
