Mt. Rushmore National Memorial
Mount Rushmore National Memorial is centered around a sculpture carved by Gutzon Borglum into the granite face of Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills. The sculpture features the 60-foot heads of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. The four presidents were chosen, respectively, to represent the birth, the growth, the development, and the preservation of the United States. The Park was established in 1925, but the sculpture wasn't completed until 1941.
