The Sheridan Inn's significance in our nation's history lies primarily in its direct connection with William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody, who developed and sold the concept of the Inn to the railroad. As part owner, he directed hotel management, and even auditioned new members for his touring company the "Wild West" show from the front porch. Buffalo Bill pulled together one of the most interesting cast of true-to-life characters that has probably ever been assembled. Some he had known as a young frontier scout and others he met later as a Pony Express rider, military scout, cattle rancher, mine owner, or in one of this many other enterprises. You will know the characters as icons of the American West, while others you may have never heard of previously but they are all people you will want to know. Together, they have helped shape how we as Americans see ourselves and how others in the world see us.
