Have you ever seen this in person?
I was in Nebraska, but never made it to South Dakota.
The more I watched the story of the Man responsible for
the art work on the PBS movie. The more
I thought about this post. What an achievement this was.
Town of Keystone in the Black Hills of South Dakota,
it belonged to the Lakota Sioux Tribe.
Carved into Granite ( we have Granite in Maine too. )
It was started in 1029 during the great Depression,
(like now) It was finished in 1941
Many were put to work during the depression. It look scary.
Gutzon Borglum Danish-American and his Son Lincoln
were the Artist's. The Idea was conceived by Doane Tobenson
Gutzon died in 1941 and the funding was lost. His son Lincoln stopped.
I would love to take that flight.
The site covers 1,278 acres. The Natl. Park Service has control.
If you get the chance watch the PBS movie RUSHMORE.
I need to put this on the bucket list.
