On a recent trip to Cody, Wyoming we stopped in at the Cody Mural. The Mural is an LDS (Mormon) Church historical site. There is a missionary couple at the church, which is an active chapel, to greet you.

This church is still in use, but one section is used as the mural and museum.

Inside there is a small museum with an original copy of the Book of Mormon and a single room with artifacts from the LDS history of the Cody area.

The Cody Mural itself is painted in the domed area of the church. The missionaries will walk you through the mural, which winds around the dome, starting with First Vision. The Mural goes through the history of the church showing many famous scenes including the Pioneers and the settling of Cody.

After viewing the mural, you can spend a few minutes learning about the history of the pioneers who settled Cody. There are some fascinating stories about how they were able to survive and raise money.
