Bill Cody had Buffalo added to his name after reportedly killing 4,200 bison in 18 months to feed railroad workers. The Medal of Honor winner is best known for his ten-year tour in Wild West shows. He performed with other celebrities such as Annie Oakley and Calamity Jane. In 1886, he purchased 4,000 acres in North Platte, Nebraska, and called it Scout’s Rest Ranch. You can tour his three-story, Victorian house to see many of his original furnishings and memorabilia. The property is part of a state historical park.
