Medora is North Dakota's Favorite Playground -- but it's also the most historic town in the state!


Famous residents include:

  • President Theodore Roosevelt

  • The Marquis and Marquise de Mores

  • Doc Hubbard
  • And legendary businessman, Harold Schafer -- along with his son, former governor of North Dakota, Ed Schafer!

Each individual credits this quaint hamlet with inspiring them to greatness in some way.

As Theodore Roosevelt said in Fargo, "I never would have been President if not for my time in the North Dakota Badlands!"

On April 1, we celebrate the founding of Teddy's beloved Cowtown. 

Join us by walking the historic streets, exploring Theodore Roosevlet National Park, and visiting in the Chateau de Mores Interpretive Center!
