USA/ND: Medora

Medora is the gateway to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park and is a typical North Dakota cowboy town. Founded in 1883 along the railroad line, it was a classic Wild West outpost and it still is. Population of 112. Two or four streets. Three churches. A couple saloons and bars. Even a Medora musical every summer! And the Coca Cola vending machine is cowboy-themed. Plus, Medora has an awesome Cowboy Hall of Fame Museum (next post).
