Fort Cody Trading Post has been a beacon on the prairie for over 50 years!    In 1963, Fort Cody began on the Lincoln Highway, and in 1968 opened near brand new Interstate 80 and a great partnership was born!   It is pretty unusual for someone to say they haven’t stopped or at least driven by on their way to someplace else!

The Fort is now in second generation ownership and we plan to be here for a long time.   Customers that came as children are now bringing in their own kids or grandkids to savor that sweet touch of ‘Roadside Americana’ that is so quickly dwindling in the U.S.    A stop at Fort Cody is to many, a step back into a more simple and gentle time.    To others, it is a brand new adventure to explore and enjoy!

Be sure to take time to view Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show in Miniature, with its 20,000 hand carved figures.  It is one of the largest displays of folk art in the country!  See our Old West Museum, filled with authentic pieces of historic Cowboy gear and Buffalo Bill memorabilia!  Kids will enjoy exploring the stockade out back, complete with jail, wagons, log cabin, and one of the few remaining ‘Muffler Men’ in the United States!    Our little two-headed calf has fascinated young and old for over 50 years, too.  Yep, there’s something for everyone, all free of charge.

Our store is loaded with nostalgic items, jewelry, moccasins and leather goods, western books, T-shirts, toys, and Native American crafts.    Won’t you stop and see us soon?

Buffalo Bill lived in North Platte for 32 years at his home known as “Scouts Rest Ranch”, along the beautiful North Platte River.
