North Dakota Hotel Reservations
Chateau de Mores State Historic Site
Among the early and more dynamic settlers in southwestern North Dakota was Antoine de Vallombrosa, the Marquis de Mores. He got to work owning and operating a plethora of businesses, including a beef packing plant, a stagecoach line, a freight company, refrigerated railway cars, cattle and sheep raising, and a new town which he called Medora – in honor of his wife.
Their summer residence was the beautiful Chateau de Mores, a 26-room house built in 1883. The Chateau, now an historic house museum, is located southwest of Medora near Dickinson, and still has many of the original furnishings and personal effects from the family. Chateau de Mores tours are available in the summer months.
