Mount Rushmore - Wikipedia This article is about the mountain Mount Rushmore For the 1960s rock band see Mount Rushmore band Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore a batholith in the Black Hills in Keystone South Dakota United States Sculptor Gutzon Borglum created the sculptures design and oversaw the projects execution from 1927 to 1941 with the help of his son Lincoln Borglum and Chief Carver Luigi del Bianco 2 Mount Rushmore features 60foot 18 m sculptures of the heads of four United States presidents George Washington 1732–1799 Thomas Jefferson 1743–1826 Theodore Roosevelt 1858–1919 and Abraham Lincoln 1809–1865 3 The memorial park covers 1278 45 acres 2 00 sq mi 5 17 km24 and is 5725 feet 1745 m above sea level 5 South Dakota historian Doane Robinson is credited with conceiving the idea of carving the likenesses of famous people into the Black Hills region of South Dakota in order to promote tourism in the region Robinsons initial idea was to sculpt the Needles however Gutzon Borglum rejected the Needles because of the poor quality of the granite and strong opposition from Native American groups They settled on Mount Rushmore which also has the advantage of facing southeast for maximum sun exposure Robinson wanted it to feature American West heroes like Lewis and Clark Red Cloud6 and Buffalo Bill Cody7 but Borglum decided the sculpture should have broader appeal and chose the four presidents After securing federal funding through the enthusiastic sponsorship of Mount Rushmores great political patron U S Senator Peter Norbeck8 construction on the memorial began in 1927 and the presidents faces were completed between 1934 and 1939 Upon Gutzon Borglums death in March 1941 his son Lincoln Borglum took over as leader of the construction project Each president was originally to be depicted from head to waist Lack of funding forced construction to end in late October 1941 9 Mount Rushmore has become an iconic symbol of the United States and it has appeared in works of fiction as well as being discussed or depicted in other popular works It attracts over two million visitors annually 1

Lakota Sioux as The Six Grandfathers10 the mountain was renamed after Charles E Rushmore a prominent New York lawyer during an expedition in 1885 11 At first the project of carving Rushmore was undertaken to increase tourism in the Black Hills region of South Dakota After long negotiations involving a Congressional delegation and President Calvin Coolidge the project received Congressional approval The carving started in 1927 and ended in 1941 with no fatalities 12 As Six Grandfathers the mountain was part of the route that Lakota leader Black Elk took in a spiritual journey that culminated at Black Elk Peak Following a series of military campaigns from 1876 to 1878 the United States asserted control over the area a claim that is still disputed on the basis of the 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie see section Controversy below Among American settlers the peak was known variously as Cougar Mountain Sugarloaf Mountain Slaughterhouse Mountain and Keystone Cliffs It was named Mount Rushmore during a prospecting expedition by Charles Rushmore David Swanzey husband of Carrie Ingalls and Bill Challis 13 Historian Doane Robinson conceived the idea for Mount Rushmore in 1923 to promote tourism in South Dakota In 1924 Robinson persuaded sculptor Gutzon Borglum to travel to the Black Hills region to ensure the carving could be accomplished Borglum had been involved in sculpting the Confederate Memorial Carving a massive basrelief memorial to Confederate leaders on Stone Mountain in Georgia but was in disagreement with the officials there 14 Construction of the Mount Rushmore monument The original plan was to make the carvings in granite pillars known as the Needles However Borglum realized that the eroded Needles were too thin to support sculpting He chose Mount Rushmore a grander location partly because it faced southeast and enjoyed maximum exposure to the sun Borglum said upon seeing Mount Rushmore America will march along that skyline 15Congress authorized the Mount Rushmore National Memorial Commission on March 3 1925 15 President Coolidge insisted that along with Washington two Republicans and one Democrat be portrayed 16 Between October 4 1927 and October 31 1941 Gutzon Borglum and 400 workers17 sculpted the colossal 60 foot 18 m high carvings of U S presidents George Washington Thomas Jefferson Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln to represent the first 130 years of American history These presidents were selected by Borglum because of their role in preserving the Republic and expanding its territory 1518 The carving of Mount Rushmore involved the use of dynamite followed by the process of honeycombing a process where workers drill holes close together allowing small pieces to be removed by hand 19 In total about 450000 short tons 410000 t of rock were blasted off the mountainside 20 The image of Thomas Jefferson was originally intended to appear in the area at Washingtons right but after the work there was begun the rock was found to be unsuitable so the work on the Jefferson figure was dynamited and a new figure was sculpted to Washingtons left 15 The Chief Carver of the mountain was Luigi del Bianco artisan and headstone carver in Port Chester NY Del Bianco emigrated to the U S from Friuli in Italy and was chosen to work on this project because of his remarkable skill at etching emotions and personality into his carved portraits 2 In 1933 the National Park Service took Mount Rushmore under its jurisdiction Julian Spotts helped with the project by improving its infrastructure For example he had the tram upgraded so it could reach the top of Mount Rushmore for the ease of workers By July 4 1934 Washingtons face had been completed and was dedicated The face of Thomas Jefferson was dedicated in 1936 and the face of Abraham Lincoln was dedicated on September 17 1937 In 1937 a bill was introduced in Congress to add the head of civilrights leader Susan B Anthony but a rider was passed on an appropriations bill requiring federal funds be used to finish only those heads that had already been started at that time In 1939 the face of Theodore Roosevelt was dedicated The Sculptors Studio – a display of unique plaster models and tools related to the sculpting – was built in 1939 under the direction of Borglum Borglum had planned to make a secret room behind the hairline of Abraham Lincoln which was supposed to be a doorway to a chamber originally intended to hold some of Americas most treasured documents but was left unfinished due to his death 22 Borglum died from an embolism in March 1941 His son Lincoln Borglum continued the project Originally it was planned that the figures would be carved from head to waist23 but insufficient funding forced the carving to end Borglum had also planned a massive panel in the shape of the Louisiana Purchase commemorating in eightfoottall gilded letters the Declaration of Independence U S Constitution Louisiana Purchase and seven other territorial acquisitions from Alaska to Texas to the Panama Canal Zone 18 In total the entire project cost US989992 32 24 Unusually for a project of such size no workers died during the carving 25 Side view of George Washington from rocky terrain at Mount Rushmore Entrance to the site On October 15 1966 Mount Rushmore was listed on the National Register of Historic Places A 500word essay giving the history of the United States by Nebraska student William Andrew Burkett was selected as the collegeage group winner in a 1934 competition and that essay was placed on the Entablature on a bronze plate in 1973 26 In 1991 President George H W Bush officially dedicated Mount Rushmore 27 In a canyon behind the carved faces is a chamber cut only 70 feet 21 m into the rock containing a vault with sixteen porcelain enamel panels The panels include the text of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution biographies of the four presidents and Borglum and the history of the U S The chamber was created as the entranceway to a planned Hall of Records the vault was installed in 1998 28 Ten years of redevelopment work culminated with the completion of extensive visitor facilities and sidewalks in 1998 such as a Visitor Center the Lincoln Borglum Museum and the Presidential Trail Maintenance of the memorial requires mountain climbers to monitor and seal cracks annually Due to budget constraints the memorial is not regularly cleaned to remove lichens However on July 8 2005 Alfred Kärcher GmbH a German manufacturer of pressure washing and steam cleaning machines conducted a free cleanup operation which lasted several weeks using pressurized water at over 200 °F 93 °C 29 Ecologyedit The Black Hills opposite Mount Rushmore Aerial NW direction view of Mount Rushmore National Memorial from a helicopter The flora and fauna of Mount Rushmore are similar to those of the rest of the Black Hills region of South Dakota Birds including the turkey vulture bald eagle hawk and meadowlark fly around Mount Rushmore occasionally making nesting spots in the ledges of the mountain Smaller birds including songbirds nuthatches and woodpeckers inhabit the surrounding pine forests 30 Terrestrial mammals include the mouse least chipmunk red squirrel skunk porcupine raccoon beaver badger coyote bighorn sheep bobcat elk mule deer yellowbellied marmot and American bison 3031 The striped chorus frog western chorus frog and northern leopard frog also inhabit the area32 along with several species of snake Grizzly Bear Brook and Starling Basin Brook the two streams in the memorial support fish such as the longnose dace and the brook trout citation neededMountain goats are not indigenous to the region Those living near Mount Rushmore are descendents of a tribe that Canada gifted to Custer State Park in 1924 which later escaped 303334 At lower elevations coniferous trees mainly the ponderosa pine surround most of the monument providing shade from the sun Other trees include the bur oak the Black Hills spruce and the cottonwood Nine species of shrubs grow near Mount Rushmore There is also a wide variety of wildflowers including especially the snapdragon sunflower and violet Towards higher elevations plant life becomes sparser 34 However only approximately five percent of the plant species found in the Black Hills are indigenous to the region 35 The area receives about 18 inches 460 mm of precipitation on average per year enough to support abundant animal and plant life Trees and other plants help to control surface runoff Dikes seeps and springs help to dam up water that is flowing downhill providing watering spots for animals In addition stones like sandstone and limestone help to hold groundwater creating aquifers 36 A study of the fire scars present in tree ring samples indicates that forest fires occur in the ponderosa forests surrounding Mount Rushmore around every 27 years Large fires are not common Most events have been ground fires that serve to clear forest debris 37 The area is a climax community Recentwhenpine beetle infestations have threatened the forest 31 Geographyedit Geologyedit Mount Rushmore showing the full size of the mountain and the scree of rocks from the sculpting and construction Mount Rushmore is largely composed of granite The memorial is carved on the northwest margin of the Black Elk Peak granite batholith in the Black Hills of South Dakota so the geologic formations of the heart of the Black Hills region are also evident at Mount Rushmore The batholith magma intruded into the preexisting mica schist rocks during the Proterozoic 1 6 billion years ago 38 Coarse grained pegmatite dikes are associated with the granite intrusion of Black Elk Peak and are visibly lighter in color thus explaining the lightcolored streaks on the foreheads of the presidents The Black Hills granites were exposed to erosion during the Neoproterozoic but were later buried by sandstone and other sediments during the Cambrian Remaining buried throughout the Paleozoic they were reexposed again during the Laramide orogeny around 70 million years ago 38 The Black Hills area was uplifted as an elongated geologic dome 39 Subsequent erosion stripped the granite of the overlying sediments and the softer adjacent schist Some schist does remain and can be seen as the darker material just below the sculpture of Washington The tallest mountain in the region is Black Elk Peak 7242 ft or 2207 m Borglum selected Mount Rushmore as the site for several reasons The rock of the mountain is composed of smooth finegrained granite The durable granite erodes only 1 inch 25 mm every 10000 years thus was more than sturdy enough to support the sculpture and its longterm exposure 15 The mountains height of 5725 feet 1745 m above sea level5 made it suitable and because it faces the southeast the workers also had the advantage of sunlight for most of the day Soilsedit The Mount Rushmore area is underlain by well drained alfisol soils of very gravelly loam Mocmount to silt loam Buska texture brown to dark grayish brown 40 Climateedit Mount Rushmore has a humid continental climate Dwb in the Koeppen climate classification It is inside a USDA Plant Hardiness Zone of 5a meaning certain plant life in the area can withstand a low temperature of no less than −20 °F −29 °C 41

people visited the park 1 In the 1950s and 1960s Sioux Benjamin Black Elk son of medicine man Black Elk was the Fifth Face of Mount Rushmore posing for photographs with thousands of tourists He became one of the most photographed people in the world 46 Conservationedit Distant view of Mount Rushmore The ongoing conservation of the site is overseen by the US National Park Service 47 Physical efforts to conserve the monument have included replacement of the sealant applied originally by Gutzon Borglum which had proved ineffective at providing water resistance components include linseed oil granite dust and white lead A modern silicone replacement was used disguised with granite dust In 1998 electronic monitoring devices were installed to track movement in the topology of the sculpture to an accuracy of 3 mm The site has been subsequently digitally recorded using a terrestrial laser scanning methodology in 2009 as part of the international Scottish Ten project providing a record of unprecedented resolution and accuracy to inform the conservation of the site This data was made accessible online to be freely used by the wider community to aid further interpretation and public access 48 Controversyedit The United States seized the area from the Lakota tribe after the Great Sioux War of 1876 The Treaty of Fort Laramie from 1868 had previously granted the Black Hills to the Lakota in perpetuity Members of the American Indian Movement led an occupation of the monument in 1971 naming it Mount Crazy Horse Among the participants were young activists grandparents children and Lakota holy man John Fire Lame Deer who planted a prayer staff atop the mountain Lame Deer said the staff formed a symbolic shroud over the presidents faces which shall remain dirty until the treaties concerning the Black Hills are fulfilled 49 In 2004 the first Native American superintendent of the park Gerard Baker was appointed Baker has stated that he will open up more avenues of interpretation and that the four presidents are only one avenue and only one focus 50 The Crazy Horse Memorial is being constructed elsewhere in the Black Hills to commemorate the famous Native American leader as a response to Mount Rushmore It is said to be larger than Mount Rushmore and has the support of Lakota chiefs the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation has rejected offers of federal funds However this memorial is likewise the subject of controversy even within the Native American community 51 In popular cultureedit Roger Thornhill Cary Grant and Eve Kendall Eva Marie Saint dangle precariously from the sculpture of George Washington in the 1959 film North by Northwest Mount Rushmore commemorative stamp of 1952 Main article Mount Rushmore in popular culture Because of its fame as a monument Mount Rushmore has been depicted in multiple places in popular culture It is often depicted as a cover for a secret location shown with faces removed or modified as in Superman II or added or parodied Trey Parker and Matt Stone used the location as the headquarters for their movie Team America World Police The memorial was also famously used as the location of the climactic chase scene in Alfred Hitchcocks 1959 movie North by Northwest 52 Legacy and commemorationedit On August 11 1952 the U S Post Office issued the Mount Rushmore Memorial commemorative stamp on the 25th anniversary of the dedication of the Mt Rushmore National Memorial in the Black Hills of South Dakota 53 On January 2 1974 a 26cent airmail stamp depicting the monument was also issued 54 See alsoedit List of colossal
