Wild Bill Hickok is known as a hero of the American Old West. Following his time in the Union Army during the Civil War, Wild Bill made his life as a lawman, gunfighter, and an avid gambler. Wild Bill also did some acting in his time, as a part of Buffalo Bill Cody’s Scouts of the Plains. He and Texas Jack Omohundro stayed on for some time, but left prior to the beginning Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.
Lucky for us, we’ve got our own Wild Bill right here in the Stockyards. You can find him walking up and down Exchange St., chatting and taking photos with visitors. Come visit us and we’ll help you find him.
