About Mount Rushmore

Mount Rushmore National Memorial, located in the Black Hills near Keystone, S.D., features the dramatic, 60-foot-high sculptures of four U.S. presidents- Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. The monument, visible from 60 miles away, was carved by sculptor Gutzon Borglum from 1927 to 1941. Xanterra operates a 10,000-square-foot gift shop, cafeteria and fast-food facility at the memorial.
