Cody was named for William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody. Many tourists come to the area to see the "old west" in action.

Here is a brief excerpt of Cody history from the Chamber of Commerce:
"The Colonel and several friends came to the area with the avowed purpose of land development and the building of a community. The original townsite selected was located at the east end of the Shoshone Canyon, but was later moved to the present site of the city. At the insistence of Colonel Cody's fellow developers, the site was named Cody in 1895. Streets were laid out and named for General Phil Sheridan and the originators of the community.By 1902, the town was incorporated and Colonel Cody opened his famous "Hotel in the Rockies", the Irma, named after his youngest daughter."
