The years of inductions and nominations have bequeathed the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame (NDCHF) to be the premier organization for western/cowboy research and archives across the region. Biographies, artifacts, books, photos and more are acquired by the NDCHF and are available, on-site, for review and/or research. The North Dakota Rodeo Association (NDRA) designated the NDCHF as its official archives.
