Buffalo Bill Bronze Sculpture
Did you know that world famous Buffalo Bill Cody earned the legendary title "Buffalo Bill" in this part of the country? The legendary contest between himself and William "Bill" Comstock took place just 10 miles west of Oakley. We are celebrating the "Birthplace of the Legend" in Logan County, Kansas. Come see the twice life size monumental bronze sculpture of Buffalo Bill. It stands 16 feet tall and weighs 9,000 pounds. Imagine the head of his horse just fits in the back of a pickup truck! Walk up the hill and experience the detail and sheer size--it is extraordinary!! To hear the story, tune in to 1610 on your AM radio, or read the story board. The statue is on Kansas' Western Vistas Historic Byway and is one of the 8 Wonders of Kansas Art.
