Relatives and friends of Louisa Frederitzi Cody will gather at the Arnold Historical Museum on Saturday May 1 at 1 pm to hang a banner celebrating Louisa Frederitzi Cody’s birthday on May 27.

Rain date will be Saturday, May 8.

May 1 is also the re-opening day for the AHS Museum.

Louisa was born in Arnold on May 27, 1844 in a home on Frederitzi Lane which is next to the museum. Her family were founding members of Immaculate Conception Church where she was baptized. Louisa met and married Buffalo Bill Cody on March 6, 1866.
