Fort Cody North Platte Nebraska

A roadside attraction located in North Platte Nebraska is a giant fort and trading post. Fort Cody is named for showman Buffalo Bill Cody and opened in 1968. The first image shows the giant sign and statue of Buffalo Bill Cody in the parking lot. Unfortunately, this slide box had some water damage that affected the slide.

The second image shows the jail at Fort Cody. I like the sign with the names of the outlaws held in the jail. The jail and ground looks very rustic.

Awesome post today! I love places like this. The giant Buffalo Bill Cody sign is super cool. Love the cars in the parking lot too. Thanks for posting.

That second image is really great - so rare. Wonder if we can figure out the ghost letters under the Fort Cody Jail sign!

I love this place! It's still thriving today and looks very much the same. Vintage Americana at its finest. I took some photos and video here:
