He homesteaded at the present site of Sheridan, Wyoming and was active in development of various business enterprises in Sheridan, Buffalo, Beckton, and Cody, Wyoming.

The Shoshone Irrigation Company was founded in 1895 and incorporated in 1896 for the purpose of building an irrigation canal to supply water to arid land around present day Cody, Wyoming. Cody was president and Beck was manager and secretary of the company. The town of Cody was established near the canal route in 1896.

William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody participated in the westward expansion of the United States and helped shape the world's romantic image of the American frontier.

Born February 26, 1846 in LeClair, Iowa, he moved with his family to Kansas and later rode for the Pony Express (1860-1861). He served briefly in the American Civil War and was given the nickname "Buffalo Bill" when he supplied buffalo meat for workers on the Kansas Pacific Railroad in 1867-1868. As chief of scouts for the Fifth U.S. Cavalry he participated in several Indian fights between 1868 and 1872.

In 1869 his career took a new turn when he became the subject of a dime novel; he subsequently appeared in theatrical melodramas, touring successfully for 11 years. In 1883 he organized a Wild West show that staged Indian fights, roundups, stage robberies, and buffalo hunts and introduced such stars as Buck Taylor and Annie Oakley to the public. Cody maintained several business interests one of which was the Shoshone Irrigation Company, which began in 1895, in partnership with George Washington Thornton Beck. His Wild West Show toured Europe and the United States until 1913, after which Cody retired to the West until his death on Jan. 10, 1917.

George Washington Thornton Beck was a Wyoming sheep rancher, oil land developer and last president of the Council of the Territory of Wyoming before it became a State in 1890.

Born near Lexington, Kentucky he studied civil engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. In 1877, at age 21, Beck moved West and prospected in Colorado for several years. He then settled on a homestead on the present site of Sheridan, Wyoming. He acquired large herds of sheep and at the same time was engaged as a mining engineer. Beck established and operated the first flour mill in Wyoming at the town of Beckton, which he had established. He also built an electric light plant, water works, and flour mill in Buffalo, Wyoming, and an electric light and power plant in Cody, Wyoming. In addition to his other business interests he was manager of the Shoshone Irrigation Company, of which William F. Cody was president.

The Shoshone Irrigation Company was founded in 1895 for the purpose of bringing water into the arid region surrounding what is now the site of Cody, Wyoming. During the course of the project the town of Cody was established in 1896. The Bureau of Reclamation eventually took over the project to establish a dam on the Shoshone River.
