The Stock Center in Cody, Wyoming was built in 1927 as the original home of the Buffalo Bill Museum, serving in that purpose until the museum was relocated to a new complex across the street. The log structure is intended to suggest a stockman's log cabin, rendered on a large scale.
The irregularly shaped one-story building was arranged with a small lobby leading to exhibit rooms intended to represent a living room, trophy room-library, dining room, kitchen and bedrooms in a rancher's house. These rooms housed the Buffalo Bill Museum's collections. The museum was built as a community project, using Buffalo Bill Cody's T E Ranch Headquarters as the basis for the design.
After museum's move, the former museum was purchased by Paul Stock, a Cody-area oilman, rancher, and three-term mayor of Cody, who then passed the property on to the town of Cody for community use. The Stock Center was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
