Written by on July 20, 2018

The Cody Heritage Museum was warmly received by the community yesterday at a grand opening that drew a significant crowd.
Fourth-generation Cody resident Mack Frost was the emcee for the event, which celebrated the culmination of eleven years of fundraising, logistic hurdles, volunteer work and the gathering of artifacts that give visitors a snapshot of different eras in the history of the community.
The Cody Ambassadors held a ribbon cutting, and women in period garb were present to add color to the event, and Marge Wilder, who with her husband Dick was a driving force behind the opening of the museum.
Pete Simpson, who grew up in Cody and was the keynote speaker at the opening ceremony, said amid anecdotes describing incidents from the colorful characters in Cody’s past that the people who settled here and made a life here overcame obstacles in order to shape this community.

Simpson pointed out that the Cody Heritage Museum showcases the character of the people who formed the community of Cody.

The Cody Heritage Museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays in the summer, and admission is just $2 per person.
