Theodore Roosevelt National Park - Roosevelt's Lodge

In 1884, Theodore Roosevelt's mother died.  Eleven hours later his wife died in the same house just two days after their daughter was born.  To get away and recover, he moved to Medora, North Dakota and started a ranch. 

This is the cabin that he had constructed.  It was somewhat pretty extravagant.  It consisted of three rooms and a loft where the ranch hands stayed. 

This is the main room of the cabin and takes up roughly half the space in the cabin.  Many of the furnishings are original. 

The bedroom.

The kitchen.
