The history and story of Medora begin here. It is a must see for first time visitors to Medora. It is family friendly, and we were able to take a stroller into the house, also. Very interesting!

I and my 2 aunts are seniors touring America and the long hike up to the mansion was beyond us but we did go on the stagecoach ride and it was a once in a lifetime event. It was fast, bumpy and great fun!

The Chateau was a guided tour in which its history was depicted. The tour was very nice and the tour guide was quite informed. My wife and I enjoyed the tour.
