Bronze Sculpture of Buffalo Bill Worth Half a Million
Buffalo Bill is memorialized at Cody Park on North U.S. Highway 83. In 1998, a British sculptor donated a life-size bronze statue of Buffalo Bill, whose show was a big hit in Queen Victoria’s time. As the centerpiece of the park’s Wild West Memorial, the statue, valued at $500,000 at the time of its installation, is surrounded by the flags of every state and nation the Wild West Show visited.
