A Post Office in the "Cow Country"
Museum Purchase. The Board of Trustees of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center dedicates this painting to fellow Trustee Harris Haston and Advisor Carlene Lebous for their exceptional work and support of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in helping to make the exhibition "Visions of the American West: Masterworks from the Buffalo Bill Historical Center" and the January 2012 Trustees meeting a reality. Their efforts exemplify the Spirit of the American West. Enacted January 27, 2012.
By 1900 Remington had made several trips to Wyoming, and in 1897, he stayed with Buffalo Bill on his ranch. Remington's photo albums contain photographs of Cody and this region. It is thought that A Post Office in the Cow Country depicts the originally proposed town of "Shoshone." The federal authorities, however, warned the town developers that the name could cause confusion with the existing town of "Shoshoni" which lay 113 miles to the southeast. Thus the name was changed to Cody. The hills in the background of the painting resemble those just east of Cody known as McCullough Peaks.
