Leah moved to North Dakota when she was 12 years old and has traveled from the Red River Valley to the badlands and many places in between. She loves small-town life and currently enjoys living on a small farm in the ND prairie. She's always had a passion for writing and has participated in novel writing challenges such as NaNoWriMo multiple times. Her favorite part about this job is recognizing small businesses that deserve a boost and seeing the positive affect her articles can have on their traffic, especially in rural areas that might have otherwise gone overlooked.

The most historic hotel in North Dakota is even older than the state itself. It pre-dated ND’s statehood by 5 years, and it’s still up and running today. It has had presidential visitors, is located in an absolutely gorgeous area, and is also considered one of the most haunted hotels in the state. While most of the rooms and floors are perfectly fine, there are a few places in particular people have reported peculiar — some might even say paranormal — activity.
The Rough Riders Hotel is located at 301 3rd Ave., Medora, ND 58645. It is open for reservations year round.
