Medora balances tourism, history, life


MEDORA -- This small town in southwest North Dakota that finds itself in a unique position.

A western town nestled in a valley along the Little Missouri River in the Badlands, Medora once hosted the man who would become our 26th president.

It’s now a summer sanctuary where families can eat ice cream, stroll through the past and catch a show at the top of a hill. But it’s also a city where people run businesses, teach school and bank.
