The head of Crazy Horse will be 87 feet high; by comparison, the heads of the four U.S. Presidents at Mount Rushmore are each 60 feet high. The monument has been in progress since 1948 and completion is expected in 2420.

10: MOUNT RUSHMORE | What was once an idea to bring tourism to South Dakota, turned into something much greater. Master sculptor Borglum imagined large figures of the American west carved in South Dakota’s Black Hills. He wanted the sculpture to be a monument that conveyed the meaning of America. Work commenced officially on October 4, 1927. After fourteen long years riddled with funding challenges, the monument was completed in 1941. Today Mount Rushmore is visited by millions of visitors a year and stands as a symbol of America and this great nation.
