William F. Cody, more popularly known as Buffalo Bill established and owned the Irma Hotel in Cody, Wyoming in 1902. Buffalo Bill was known in the U.S. for his shows and events that helped form the American West. One of these shows was the Wild West circa 1883 that toured for thirty years around Europe and America. He was also one of the founders of city of Cody in 1895 where he built his TE Ranch then followed by the Irma Hotel. The hotel was designed by a Nebraskan church architect named Alfred Wilderman Woods wherein he used river rock and sandstone from Beck Lake for its outer walls. Buffalo Bill promoted Irma Hotel to be a traveler?s choice especially for those who came to visit the Yellowstone National Park to the east. He fondly described it as ?just the sweetest hotel that ever was? and kept 2 suites and 1 office for his own use. It was included in the National Register of Historic Places and still functions as a full-service hotel until today.
