Heart Mountain WW II History Tour
The Heart Mountain World War II History Tour tells the story of Cody, Wyoming’s unique tie to World War II, and also introduces riders to the rich farming and ranching history of the Heart Mountain region that surrounds the Cody area.
The tour begins at the Historic Irma Hotel in downtown Cody, travels past Wyoming’s Veterans War Memorial, and along the Veterans Memorial Highway to the Heart Mountain Learning Center.
Sitting at the base of Heart Mountain, the Heart Mountain Interpretive Learning Center preserves the history, artifacts and memories of the Japanese-Americans interned in detention centers following the World War II bombing of Pearl Harbor. You will have an hour to explore the Learning Center before beginning the return trip to Cody.
Along the way to and from the Center our professional tour guide will share the story of Buffalo Bill Cody’s vision of an irrigation system that would turn the region’s arid ground into the fertile farmland you’ll see today. View the amazing canal system that irrigates today’s crops, and learn what crops are grown in the area.
