Scout's Rest (1886) built by William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody at cost of $3,900 is now run as a Nebraska State Park. It was Cody's place to stay between Wild West Show seasons. This museum displays many artifacts once belonging to Buffalo Bill or related to his Wild West Shows. Just as Cody kept buffalo here to use in his shows, the park now keeps a coral of these animals.
