My daughter and I went to see Mt Rushmore in 2006, we saw it in the daytime and at night when it was lit up. It was an amazing sight. I have since sadly lost my daughter but it's wonderful to have these memories of our time there. I'm from the UK, so it was extra special.

I visited the site over 50 years ago and every time I see a photo,I cannot help but feel how impressive this was as a project by the men of those days.

I have been to Mount Rushmore several times with my main focus being a visit to Crazy Horse. I first heard of Crazy Horse while in the 6th grade from a weekly reader, I am now 72. Although, the 4 presidents is an awesome sight, Crazy Horse is far and away a grander sight and one that has had me coming back for years!

Bhagirath Anjaria, Hype some of your own, then. (Human) writers generally post trivia they have first-hand knowledge about.

I visited about 5 years ago, it seemed a cold soulless place that should have never been, the hills were sacred as nature intended them

When my late husband and I visited Mt Rushmore in Aug, 2013, we were honored to meet Mr. Nick Clifford. He is the last surviving person who actually worked on the carving of this monument. I found an article by the Rapid City Journal on line that mentions his 95th birthday and tells quite a lot about him. We bought the book he wrote, "Mt. Rushmore, Q & A" that has served to answer all the many questions he's been asked over the years. This monument is quite impressive to view. It's sad that Mr. Gutzon Borglum did not live to see the finished work.

" it is believed that the shape of Mount Rushmore might remain up to 7 million years." Unless BLM or Antifa get their way.

What an amazing monument, what an achievement. I bet the men felt very proud building it.

Alan Oswald, I believe it was built around the time of the Great Depression in the 1920’s. It gave men jobs when employment was scarce. I think that s right.

It is a great feat of vision and engineering. It provided work for out of work miners and construction workers during the great depression. I am fortunate to live about a 35 minute drive from the site, and try to visit several times a year. It is one of the many interesting stops during a day's drive in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The Crazy Horse Monument is just as impressive, and is an ongoing project. In June and September it is fun to do the 3.5 mile Volsksmarch up to the Carving of Crazy Horse.
