|carved into the side of Mountain Rushmore in the
Local historian Doane Robinson came up with the idea for Mount Rushmore in 1923 in order to promote tourism in South Dakota.
Carving of Mount Rushmore was started on October 4, 1927 by Gutzon Borglum, a famous Dutch-American sculptor who was selected for the Mount Rushmore project.
At his death in March 1941 his son, Lincoln Borglum, continued the work and it was completed later that year on October 31, 1941.
Initially, it was planned for the figures to be carved from head to waist, but a shortage in funding didn’t allow for this.

To make sure the loser wasn’t pretending to be dead, an attendant dressed as Mercury would touch him with his hot iron wand. Another attendant, dressed as Charon, would hit him with a mallet.

has its own ample water supply. At the rear of the vault is a water storage reservoir that is continually replenished by a spring deep inside the granite mountain. In 1973 the water flow was 8,700 gallons per day. Tests showed the water to be pure enough for drinking and for processing microfilm. I would like to try the water for drinking!
