The Church in Cody

  • The Church in Cody
Many of the original Mormon pioneers who helped settle Wyoming’s Big Horn Basin settled in towns along the Sidon Canal they worked to construct. However, it was not until the 1920s that members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints also settled in and around Cody.
A small congregation, or branch, of the church was formally created in 1937 and the number of LDS faithful slowly increased. To accommodate the congregation, construction of the chapel that houses the Cody Mural began in 1948 and was completed in 1949.
Today, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints continues to flourish in Cody, which now has four wards in and around the city. In 1973, the Cody, Wyoming Stake was created which incorporates 13 LDS area congregations encompassing Burlington, Cody, Meeteetse, Otto and Powell, Wyoming.
