Where are we going today?

Historic Trail Town is a collection of buildings and relics of the Wyoming frontier. Local archaeologist Bob Edgar created Trail Town by moving 26 buildings built between 1879 and 1901 to the location that was once the site of Old Cody City. Walk the boardwalks of these fascinating buildings for a step back in time. Among the buildings are an old saloon, livery barn, blacksmith shop, general stores, post office and schools. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid's "Hole-in-the-Wall" cabin is also located there. See over 100 horse drawn vehicles and the original wagon trail.

    I have been several times in Old Trail Town, but the last time - June 2014 - I felt very badly treated. I'm a photographer and for many years I wear small groups of photographers to Yellowstone and surroundings. For me it is a must visit the city of Cody. We arrived at Old Trail Town - 6/20/2014 - at 6:30 and we found the entrance closed. From the outside we saw that visitors still inside.

    It's a very great place to stop and take a look around. I stop there every time I am headed to Yellowstone Park. If you get a chance to stop do it! It's something you will not forget. Bring a camera!

I have been several times in Old Trail Town, but the last time - June 2014 - I felt very badly treated. I'm a photographer and for many years I wear small groups of photographers to Yellowstone and surroundings. For me it is a must visit the city of Cody. We arrived at Old Trail Town - 6/20/2014 - at 6:30 and we found the entrance closed. From the outside we saw that visitors still inside. Despite our efforts to find someone that would allow us to access the site no one appeared. Finally around 6:45 a lady told us that the premises was closed from 7 and could not allow us to enter. (yes at 6:45 after waiting for 15 minutes)

Of course a group of 7 people is very small, clear that a group of photographers is not a desirable group, clear that this lady wanted to go home immediately, but it is also clear that we were there after traveling 12,000 miles.

Next time - in 2015 - I've decided that it's not worth to bring my students to Cody.
