The Von Hoffmann house was built in 1884 by the parents of the town's namesake. Medora Von Hoffmann married the Marquis de Mores, a French nobleman who founded the town and named it for his bride.

The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation recently restored the house to showcase its historical significance. A dedication ceremony was set for Saturday afternoon.
