HISTORY

Wibaux was named after a French Huguenot, Pierre Wibaux. Wibaux became one of the largest cattlemen in the state. He made a fortune in the winter of 1890 by buying the cattle that stockmen were forced to sell at bargain prices. Wibaux's own cattle were wiped out in the winter of 1886-1887, however, he received more financial backing from French investors and rebuilt his herd to 75,000 head. Teddy Roosevelt was among his friends in this era. The future President of the Untied States was a badlands rancher at this time. Theodore Roosevelt National Park and the town of Medora, North Dakota, is just 30 miles from Wibaux, stand today as reminders of the roles these gentlemen played in history.
