Mount Rushmore National Memorial

The Black Hills of South Dakota have always held a special meaning. The American Indians have considered these hills sacred for centuries and today Mount Rushmore is considered a sacred place to people from many different cultures and countries. To some it reflects Patriotism; to others it reflects the natural beauty of our nation, to some it represents a great work of art and still to others it presents a challenge for them to begin to share their own cultures. Each visitor to the memorial is able to find within themselves their own idea of what it reflects and hold that idea true.

The Black Hills for centuries have been a place of healing and reflection. This belief is still alive today at the memorial where millions of visitors come each year to reflect on their surroundings at Mount Rushmore, the larger than life sculpture, the magnificent Black Hills scenery, and wildlife.

The memorial's future holds limitless possibilities for education, inspiration, unity and healing. Come be a part of it.
