big house on the prairie

Chateau de Mores, the hunting lodge and summer home built in 1883 by the Marquis de Mores, a Frenchman who settled in the Badlands of North Dakota and founded the town of Medora, which he named after his wife. The 26-room house (nicknamed the chateau by locals, who were accustomed to much smaller dwellings made of logs and sod) is now a museum operated by the State Historical Society of North Dakota
