Featuring MOR's Curator of History Michael Fox, Ten Mile Creek Brewery, and The Mint Café & Bar
In 1879, Howard Eaton founded the Custer Trail Ranch near Medora, ND. Inviting friends from back East to visit, Eaton found that guests were willing to pay for a real western experience and soon found that this trade was more lucrative than running cattle. By 1926, dozens of so-called "dude ranches" dotted the western states with a large number surrounding Yellowstone National Park. Learn about Eaton and the adventures of the dudes and dude ranchers and how they brought a new kind of visitor to our region.
