Keystone, South Dakota
This Presidents’ Day, head to South Dakota’s Black Hills for a look at one of America’s most beloved monuments -- that almost didn’t happen. A lack of skilled workers and money nearly spelled doom for Mt. Rushmore. But after 14 years, the determination of a father-son sculpting team, along with 400 skilled artisans, paid off. See for yourself near Keystone, SD, where the 60-foot sculptures in honor of America’s most-noted presidents emerge from the smooth, fine-grained granite in an act of towering achievement to celebrate the first 150 years of American history.
