Chateau Interpretive Center
Medora, North Dakota
The Chateau de Mores is the State Historical Site for the summer home of the Marquis de Mores, a French aristocrat and his east coast socialite bride, Medora. Built in 1883, the 26-room home was dubbed “The Chateau” and housed many influential and famous guests.
The Interpretive Center – built below The Chateau by the State Park Service in the 1970’s – had fallen into disrepair and was inadequate to meet the current needs of a destination point and an exhibition venue. JLG’s new facility contains humidity-controlled exhibition spaces, a museum store, a meeting room, office space, storage space, museum preparation spaces, as well as the required mechanical and circulation spaces.
