Christmas with Buffallo Bill Cody in North Platte

The 1886 home of Col. and Mrs. Cody, a long-time Lincoln Highway stop in North Platte, Nebraska, is decorated for  an 1880s Christmas. Nightly events include period reenactors, caroling, roasting chestnuts, horse-drawn carriage rides, hot cider, holiday music, the armed services honor tree,  and Santa Claus. The 1887 horse barn, log cabin, and other outbuildings are decorated with exterior Christmas lights. The mansion has 18 lighted and decorated trees inside, while the barn has a large lighted and decorated tree, where visitors may make their own ornament to hang.

  1. Well, I didn’t make it to Nebraska but I am spending the expressway portion of my Christmas drive with an audio version of Mr. Cody’s autobiography. I guess the Lincoln Highway part is near the end:-)
