An actor played the part of the Marquis de Mores and entertained us for 20 minutes prior to our touring the house. Recommend you time your visit to see a presentation.

Wow, I can't believe they still maintain this property as well as they do. It makes sense since it is the home of the driving force to establish the region as something other than wilderness. The home furnishings are the most amazing to me. Both...More

Really enjoyed the history in this home. 95% of the furnishings etc are the originals. The wife left the home and never came back. Someone was hired for 50 years just to care for the home.

Very interesting history of the town of Medora 1886-1889, and the Marquis de Mores who named the town after his wife. The dwelling gives you a good idea of what people lived like in those days.

Definitely worth the price of admission to visit this unique home and learn about Medora history. Many of the furnishings and items are original due to the fact that the Mores family had a caretaker living in the house until it was donated to ND...More
