About

The Cody Enterprise was founded under the dual ownership of William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody and Colonel John Peake in August of 1899. In the letter to the editor printed on January 6, 1910, Cody's sister wrote that they believed that Peake, a native of Washington D.C., was the perfect man to "boost a sagebrush wilderness into the metropolis of Wyoming." Peake and Cody accomplished this by focusing on the state of Wyoming for its unique natural landscape; the Enterprise promoted the beauty of Yellowstone National Park to attract more businesses, advertise the travel industry, and remind citizens in the growing town of Cody of the magnificent surrounding scenery.
