250 Main St., Medora, North Dakota
Cowboys, Native Americans, horses, cattle drives, ranching, and rodeos are the subjects celebrated at the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame in Medora, at the gateway to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Exhibits focus on Western cultural history, and a 5,000-square-foot patio gives visitors views of the Little Missouri River and the Badlands.
The small town of Medora, mostly reconstructed in Old West style, is full of history. Founded in 1883 by the Marquis de Mores, a wealthy French nobleman and entrepreneur, Medora was intended to be a meatpacking and shipping center. That venture failed, but the town had already attracted young Teddy Roosevelt, who came to hunt buffalo and fell in love with the land and the lifestyle. Roosevelt acquired two cattle ranches outside Medora and later called his Badlands experiences “the romance of my life.” Roosevelt, by the way, was the first “Great Westerner” inducted into the North Dakota Hall of Fame.

Some people like to travel by train because it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of an airplane.
I think my pilot was a little inexperienced. We were sitting on the runway, and he said, “OK, folks, we’re gonna be taking off in a just few—whoa! Here we go.”
