An inspiring attraction
The town of Cody is the eastern gateway to Yellowstone National Park. When you drive into town, a red, white and blue flag greets you. Behind that flag, there’s another. And another. And another. And soon you find yourself driving alongside a sea of more than a thousand American flags, all waving proudly in the mountain air.
It is an unexpected and awe-inspiring sight.
The field is many things at once. A point of local pride. An awe-inspiring tourist attraction. And an innovative fundraiser for the Cody Heritage Museum because every flag on the field represents a donation someone has made to its construction. When the museum opens its doors, people who live in the community – and those just passing through – will have a place to explore a rich legacy of rodeos, cattle and sheep ranches, oil and gas exploration, and artistry.
