Three miles southwest of McCausland is the Isaac Cody Homestead. The two-story stone house represents a late continuation of the Federal tradition. The interior was quite elaborate for the time (it was constructed in 1847), having built-in closets and walnut doors and fireplace mantels. At a later date (c. 1860) a two-story clapboard addition was made to the original house. This addition became the principal entrance to the house. Isaac Cody was the father of Buffalo Bill Cody, and the younger Cody spent his early years at this homestead. The house is now a museum and is open to the public. It can be reached by traveling south on the gravel road that leaves McCausland at its southwest corner; proceed 1 mile to the first gravel road to the right (west); follow this road 1 mile, then take the gravel road to the left (south); the Homestead is about a mile further.
