The Wild West lives on in North Platte, Nebraska. History comes alive at the Buffalo Bill Ranch State Historical Park. David Fudge, NEBRSAKAlandDays’ Executive Director shares a taste of the annual event that includes the legendary Buffalo Bill Rodeo, proclaimed as America’s oldest rodeo. Fort Cody Trading Post is one of America’s last fee standing, family-owned roadside attractions. Fort Cody owner, Chuck Henline, reminisces about the family owned business where a one-headed calf, tomahawks and kitschy gifts are super popular items with the kids.
