Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum
One of the most prominent figures of the American West is William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody. Buffalo Bill left his hometown in Kansas at an early age to become a cattle herder. Throughout his life, he did it at all; from mining for gold to and traveling the world with his vaudevillian performance - The Wild West Shows. He introduced people all over the United States and Europe to a romanticized version of the Wild West that became so popular in Hollywood and Pop Culture. The Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum opened in 1921 and gives attendees an intimate look at the man's life and work. He is buried atop Lookout Mountain upon his request.
