Description  Originally known as Mingusville, Wibaux is in the heart of the badlands and was a center of commerce during the "Beef Bonanza" of the late 1800's.  The downtown is a national historic district.  Wibaux was that Wild West that is portrayed in so many movies.  It is the place where president to be, Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, earned the nickname "Old Four Eyes" after thrashing a bully in a local saloon.  Drunk and bored cowboys would shoot up the local merchants signage and the telegraph office.  It was recently featured in the movie "The Knockaround Boys".  A hard place to live because of the climate and geography.  Photos are available on the Museum web site  text courtesy Wibaux Museum
