Cody (Cody Station) was near what is now Farm Road 1774, which parallels the Missouri Pacific Railroad, and three miles northwest of Magnolia, ten miles east of Plantersville, and thirteen miles northeast of Waller in far northeastern Waller County. The town was possibly named for Buffalo Bill Cody and had a post office from 1906, when 150 people lived in the area, until 1909. The Cody Sawmill Commissary housed the post office. A one-room school existed there in 1912. Cody was abandoned when the sawmill, after depleting the area's timber supply, closed. The town was probably gone by the time of World War I.
