A house in the North Dakota tourist town of Medora that is on the National Register of Historic Places has been restored.

The Von Hoffmann house was built in 1884 by the parents of the town's namesake. Medora Von Hoffmann married the Marquis de Mores, a French nobleman who founded the town and named it for his bride.

The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation recently restored the house to showcase its historical significance. A dedication ceremony was set for Saturday afternoon.
