Read all about it

The building named Stock Center was completed and dedicated as the Buffalo Bill Museum in 1927. Until it ceased to serve that purpose in 1969 it was a part of a growing historical-cultural complex which eventually came to be known as the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. The old museum building was constructed of carefully chosen lodgepole pine logs fitted together by carftsmen under direction of the area's acknowledged master-builder of log structures. The conception was to represent, though on a vaster than average scale, a typical cattleman's frontier ranch house. The City of Cody came into possession of the property in 1969 and named it Stock Center.
