Cowboy Hall of Fame to Hold Groundbreaking Today

Tue December 16, 2003 - National Edition

MEDORA, ND (AP) The North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame is starting construction, seven years after the project’s inception.

Groundbreaking for a $3 million building is set for today, near the gate to Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

Hall executive director Darrell Dorgan said nearly $2 million has been pledged to the project, and the city of Medora has agreed to sponsor up to $2.8 million in financing bonds.

The building will honor the 45 men and women who have been inducted into the hall over the past seven years. It also will be a center of cowboy and Western history.

Construction is scheduled to be done in the spring of 2005.
