America's Shrine of Democracy Nearly 80 years after completion, Mount Rushmore continues to amaze and inspire visitors from around the world.

Seeking a way to promote tourism in the Black Hills, South Dakota state historian Doane Robinson came up with the idea of carving likenesses of historical figures into stone. His original suggestion involved sculpting Old West heroes into the granite pillars of the Needles, but the project evolved when sculptor Gutzon Borglum was brought on board. Borglum felt that American presidents would be a bigger draw and eventually settled on four

who were influential in promoting and expanding American democracy: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt. Due to the scope of the project, higher quality rock, and better sun exposure, Borglum felt Mount Rushmore near Keystone would be the ideal location for his monument. President Calvin Coolidge took a break from his summer vacation in the Black Hills to formally dedicate the project on

President Calvin Coolidge formally dedicated the carving project of Mount Rushmore on August 10, 1927, and efforts continued on the carving for the next fourteen years. The carving was originally planned to extend down to the presidents' waists. When funds were diverted to the war effort, the four figures were never completed.

400 workers were hired to remove approximately 450,000 tons of granite from Mount Rushmore using dynamite, a laborious and dangerous task that fortunately resulted in no fatalities. The carvings are 60 feet tall and were originally intended to be even grander in scale, but federal funding ran out, forcing Borglum to scrap

Thomas Jefferson wasn’t only the principal author of the Declaration of Independence; he is also credited with developing the first ice cream recipe in America! Be sure to sample a taste of history at Carvers’ Cafe and use the hashtag #Jefferson IceCream for a fun social media photo opportunity.

Hours and Seasons The visitor facilities at Mount Rushmore are open year-round, seven days a week, closing only on December 25. Entrance Fees There is no admission fee to visit the memorial, but you’ll have to pay to park in the garage. Pay stations have been erected in several locations, allowing you to pay at your leisure and present your ticket upon exiting. Fees are $10 per vehicle; seniors pay $5. Your parking permit is valid for one year from the date of purchase. Night Lighting The sculpture is illuminated nightly year-round.

Sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski had been asked by Chief Henry Standing Bear through written correspondence to come to the sacred Paha Sapa (Black Hills) to carve a memorial in the likeness of Lakota Warrior, Crazy Horse, honoring all Indigenous peoples of North America. Crazy Horse had been killed at Fort Robinson in 1877. In his letter to Korczak, Henry Standing Bear wrote, “My fellow chiefs and I would like the white man to know the red man has great heroes, also.” In May of 1947, Korczak started the project with only

Later, he built a 741-step staircase, which he climbed several times daily— often to restart “Buda,” the air compressor at the bottom that powered his drill. Despite weather that could make work difficult, Korczak continued the monumental endeavor yearround (weather permitting). A Family Legacy

The two even went to the extent of outlining the sculpture on the Mountain with six-foot-wide white lines, using 164 gallons of paint, to help visitors envision the future.

Ruth and Korczak were married on Thanksgiving Day in 1950 and started a family at Crazy Horse; by the mid-1960s, they had ten children. The children contributed to the progressing Dream; while the boys helped Korczak on the Mountain, the girls assisted Ruth in the Visitor Complex and “around the house.” Still today, many Ziolkowski family members are involved in the continuation of Crazy Horse.

A Look at the Future

The Dream which began long ago is still embedded in those who remain at Crazy Horse, including a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors, one of Korczak and Ruth’s daughters who serves as CEO, as well as many dedicated, skilled professionals. A project that began with a simple letter has grown into an icon of history, culture, and humanity—and it continues to impact the world.

The Hills Are Alive Deadwood The Luck of the Draw

34

The discovery of gold in a narrow canyon in the northern Black Hills in 1875 brought prospectors, outlaws, gamblers, and prostitutes, turning the outpost into a lawless free-for-all. Many notable figures called Deadwood home for a time, including Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, Seth Bullock, Potato Creek Johnny, and Al Swearengen. Deadwood’s fortunes have waxed and waned over the decades, with fires and

#BHVisitor

economic downturns taking their toll. Today, Deadwood is best known for its outdoor activities and casinos. The entire town has been designated a National Historic Landmark District, and its rich heritage is kept alive through historical reenactments and guided tours. Must-see stops include Mount Moriah Cemetery, the Adams Museum; Days of ‘76 Museum; and the Historic Adams House. In the winter, nearby Terry Peak offers skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling opportunities.


Many of Deadwood's most infamous citizens were laid to rest in Mount Moriah Cemetery overlooking the city, including Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, and Seth Bullock.

Named after Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer, whose 1874 Black Hills Expedition discovered gold in nearby French Creek, Custer was the birthplace of the Black Hills Gold Rush. It's the oldest established town in the Black Hills. This small community

is one of the most beautiful areas in the Black Hills, with an extensive network of trails and back country roads. It’s just a short driving distance from Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, and Jewel Cave National Monument. Custer State Park, known for its pristine lakes, granite rock formations, and abundant wildlife, lies just north and east of the city. Visitors will find a robust local food scene, art galleries, and museums.

Keystone Small Town, Big Spirit This early mining town embraced tourism in 1927 when sculptor Gutzon Borglum chose nearby Mount Rushmore as the location for his monument to four American presidents.

Today, Keystone boasts family-friendly attractions and a chance to sample local cuisine in a turn-of-the-century setting. Iron Mountain Road, with its famous "pigtail" bridges, is a favorite scenic drive.

The Lakota called the Black Hills “Paha Sapa.” Seven Lakota Sioux tribes considered them home.

Lead Mining Past, Scientific Future

Spearfish Take in the Scenery Like many Black Hills communities, 1876 was a pivotal year for Spearfish. Originally called Queen City (later renamed after the fast-flowing creek where fish were “speared” by Native American tribes), the town was founded to supply food to the gold mining camps in the northern hills. Its location in a broad valley gave rise to an agricultural industry that helped the town diversify beyond a dependence on mining. With 11,000 year-round residents and 5,000 students who attend Black Hills State University, Spearfish is the secondlargest community in the Black Hills and one of the fastest-growing “micropolitans” in the Midwest. Its natural beauty and a quaint downtown perfect for leisurely strolling offer experiences for everyone. The town’s location at the mouth of Spearfish Canyon makes it the perfect launching point for outdoor adventures. Shops, galleries, restaurants, and brew pubs have transformed the community into a year-round destination.

Homestake was the largest and longest continuallyoperating mine in America. By the time it closed, over 40 million ounces of gold valued at more than $1 billion had been extracted.

Founded in 1876 by Fred and Moses Manuel, Lead (pronounced LEED) was named after the rich vein of ore discovered by the brothers who, along with Hank Harney and Alex Engh, staked a claim and established the Homestake Gold Mine, which operated for 125 years. Today, the site houses the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF), dedicated to furthering scientific discovery through experiments conducted 4,850 feet below ground. In the winter, Lead's ample snowfall attracts winter sports enthusiasts.


Sturgis A Rider’s Paradise

Hill City is the secondoldest community in the Hills and was known as “a town with a church on each end and Hell in between.” Its location near the geographical center of the Black Hills inspired its motto, “The Heart of the Hills.” The town has evolved into a thriving arts community, with shops, museums, and other attractions. Visitors experience the rumble of a locomotive

In 1878, Sturgis was established to provide goods and services for nearby Fort Meade, an outpost for the 7th Cavalry until 1944. The Black Hills National Cemetery was established in 1948 to provide a final resting place for veterans and their spouses. Today, the town of 6,900 is best known for its annual motorcycle rally. During the offseason, you can still get your fill of Harleys at the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum, or check out the public sculptures and unique dining options ranging from doughnuts to classic steak tips.

as it felt a century ago when riding the steampowered 1880 Train through the Black Hills. Relax in one of the local wineries or craft breweries located within a few miles of the town center.

Hot Springs Make a Splash

The natural warm waters that inspired its name have drawn people to Hot Springs for centuries. Early settler Fred Evans envisioned turning the entire town into a health spa. Hot Springs is home to the largest Columbian mammoth exhibit in the world, and its historic downtown offers visitors a glimpse of early pioneer life. Kids and adults alike will enjoy a plunge into the 87-degree healing mineral waters of the local indoor pool. Wind Cave National Park, Angostura Reservoir, and a wild horse sanctuary are all a short drive from the Gateway to the Southern Hills.

Native Americans referred to Hot Springs as mni kȟáta ("hot water") due to its abundant natural warm mineral springs.

Belle Fourche Center of the Nation French for “beautiful fork,” Belle Fourche (pronounced BellFOOSH) lies at the confluence of the Belle Fourche and Redwater Rivers. Seth Bullock, former sheriff of Deadwood, bought up land and enticed the railroad to build a depot, offering free rightof-way and a new terminal. Belle Fourche soon thrived, becoming the world’s largest livestockshipping point for a period. Belle Fourche lays claim to being the “geographic center of the nation” and remains an important agricultural hub serving the Tri-State Area (NW South Dakota, NE Wyoming, and SE Montana). Visitors to this pioneering town, a gateway to the northern hills, can enjoy antique shops, museums, locally-owned restaurants, and a flag-lined walking path along the Center of the Nation Monument.

No trip to the Black Hills is complete without sampling the area's craft beers.

Buffalo

Local chefs prize buffalo for its taste and nutrition; the lean meat is higher in protein, lower in cholesterol, and has half the calories as beef, making it a healthy red meat alternative. Buffalo isn’t gamey; it’s got a slightly sweet, rich flavor similar to a high grade of lean beef. Order yours medium-rare to rare; with so little fat, the meat can dry out quickly when cooked. Buffalo burgers are the most popular preparation, but you’ll also find buffalo steak, meatloaf, stew, chili, jerky, and soup. Walleye South Dakota’s state fish has a sweet, succulent, mild taste that absorbs other flavors well. It’s widely considered the best-tasting freshwater fish. This versatile, flaky white fish has very few bones. Walleye can be baked, broiled, pan fried, grilled, poached, and sauteed.

Around the Black Hills, you’ll commonly find it batter-fried, a process that seals in the juiciness and leaves it crispy on the outside. Try ordering walleye fish tacos or fish ‘n chips. Another popular local dish is walleye “fingers” with fresh tartar sauce for dipping. Chislic Few people outside of South Dakota are familiar with chislic, the official state “nosh." Derived from Turkish and Arabic words for “skewered meat,” chislic has been a staple in eastern parts of the state for over 100 years and is gaining popularity in the Black Hills. This cubed meat dish is deep-fried or sauteed and seasoned with garlic salt. It was traditionally prepared with lamb or mutton, but most West River eateries use beef. It is often served on a skewer or with toothpicks and served with crackers and a dipping sauce. The saying “eat, drink, and be merry” is especially appropriate when on vacation. Part of the travel experience is sampling regional cuisine, and the Black Hills has a lot to offer. From unique dishes featuring ingredients you won’t find anywhere else to a burgeoning wine and craft beer scene, the area offers plenty of options to satisfy your hunger and thirst.

Indian Tacos Indian tacos are similar to traditional tacos but use fry bread instead of tortillas. When Native Americans were relocated to reservations, they were supplied with rations of flour, lard, salt, sugar, baking powder, yeast, and powdered milk. They used these meager ingredients to create fry bread, a perfect vessel for Indian tacos. They are topped with ground beef and other traditional taco

ingredients, including lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, refried beans, sour cream, diced onions, black olives, and salsa. Wojapi A traditional Native American berry sauce made with chokecherries. It’s similar to a jam or pudding, but usually made without sugar—purists let the fruit do the talking! Great Plains tribes took wild berries, ground them up with corn flour and a little honey, and boiled them until thickened. The sauce was often used as a dip for fry bread. Many chefs substitute seasonal berries such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or cherries. You’ll find authentic wojapi in a handful of eateries around the Black Hills. Kuchen South Dakota’s official state dessert is sort of a cross


South Dakota is the thirdlargest honey producer in the U.S.—no surprise given the honeybee’s designation as the state insect.

Breweries and taprooms can be found all over the Black Hills. Patrons can enjoy delicious craft beers in styles including ales, lagers, stouts, sours, and more.

Drinks The President South Dakota doesn't have an official cocktail, but if it did, The President would fit the bill. This combination of light rum, orange juice, and grenadine is smooth and citrusy, perfect for sipping after a visit to Mount Rushmore. Ask your bartender to whip one up! Mocktails Love the flavor of cocktails but looking to cut back on calories? Order your favorite drink as a mocktail instead. Most bartenders are happy to make nonalcoholic versions of classic drinks, substituting ingredients like club soda and apple cider. Some are so flavorful you might never go back to your old-fashioned OldFashioned! It’s in the Water Brewmasters in the Black Hills swear the local water gives their beer a unique flavor. These craft brews truly are one-of-a-kind drinks you won’t want to miss.

Regional specialties like pheasant, kolache, and bierock are worth the drive if you crave a foodie-themed road trip!

Peach and prune are classic flavors, but local chefs use a wide variety of seasonal fruits when concocting these desserts. You might find kuchen made with strawberries, rhubarb, apples, blueberries, apricots, raspberries, raisins, pumpkin, and more. Pasties These savory meat pies (pronounced PASS-tees) were popular with Cornish immigrant miners in the 1870s. A simple dish consisting of meat and potatoes wrapped in a flaky crust—forerunners to the modern-day Hot Pocket—pasties were a portable, nourishing meal for hardworking laborers. The crimped crust served as a makeshift handle that could be discarded if the miners’ hands were dirty. Pasties remain a delicious staple in certain areas of the Black Hills.

Cherish the flavors of South Dakota long after you’ve returned home; food, wine, and beer make great gifts or personal indulgences. Create a unique, personalized gift basket chock full of regional specialties—the sky’s the limit. You might combine buffalo, elk, smoked pheasant, turkey, and beef salami with cheese (try some curds), crackers, and pretzels. Or opt for sweets like candy, jam, jellies, honey, cookies, and nut butters. Don’t forget locally crafted wine and beer. A Piece of History

Long-necked Plesiosaurs were marine reptiles with broad, flat bodies; short tails; and four long flippers that propelled them through the water. Their fossils have been found on every continent, and they serve as inspiration for the Loch Ness Monster myth.

HISTORY WHERE IT BEGAN

A Glimpse of the Gold Rush Custer - 1874

Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and his 7th Cavalry were dispatched to the Black Hills in 1874 to establish a fort and search for a new trade route. The discovery of gold in French Creek marked the beginning of the Black Hills Gold Rush. Keystone - 1876

Miners began flooding into present-day Keystone in 1876 after gold was discovered in Battle Creek. Extracting the gold proved difficult, and most miners left to try their luck elsewhere. More gold was found in 1891, breathing new life into the community. Deadwood - 1876

60

With the 1876 discovery of a gold-bearing creek in a gulch full of dead trees, attention shifted to the northern Hills. The town of Deadwood sprang up overnight, attracting miners, gamblers, and gunslingers. Lawlessness prevailed until Seth Bullock was appointed sheriff.

troy ounces of gold were produced at the Homestake Gold Mine in Lead, SD during the course of its 125-year lifetime.

10

percent of the world's gold supply from 1876 to 2001 was prospected in the Black HIlls region of South Dakota.

Lead - 1876

Lead was founded in 1876 when a rich vein of gold was located three miles south of Deadwood. A year later, a group of investors led by George Hearst purchased the Homestake Gold Mine, which would become one of the most prolific gold mines in the world. Hill City – 1876

A group of gold miners staked a claim along Spring Creek in 1876. The settlement, named Hill City, proved better suited for tin mining.

ACROSS THE STATE SOUTH DAKOTA TO WYOMING

More things to

SEE & DO

A road trip across South Dakota provides lots of opportunity for exploration. Sioux Falls, the largest city in the state, is located in the southeastern corner. Your tour should include Falls Park and the new Arc of Dreams sculpture spanning the Big Sioux River. Continuing west, you’ll pass through Mitchell and the famed Corn Palace—a community venue decorated with murals made from corn and other grains. Located on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River, the Chamberlain Rest Area is deserving of a pit stop. It’s the sight of Dignity of Earth and Sky, a 50’ sculpture of a Native American woman cloaked in a traditional star quilt. The towering spires of the Badlands begin to appear on the

horizon near Kadoka. Exit 131 will take you to the east entrance of Badlands National Park, whose ancient rock formations and dramatic landscapes are well worth the detour. You’ve seen the signs for hundreds of miles, so stop by Wall Drug, where you’ll find everything from souvenirs and free ice water to an animated T-Rex. Insider’s tip: the doughnuts are amazing. Rapid City, the second largest city in South Dakota, is the Gateway to the Black Hills. There is plenty to see and do here, with opportunities for fine dining, entertainment, and shopping. From Rapid City, the interstate winds through the foothills of the Black Hills, taking you past Sturgis, Whitewood, and Spearfish before crossing the

West of Sundance, as you near Moorcroft, you’ll spot Devils Tower National Monument. The Plains Indians referred to the area between Sheridan and Gillette as the “Valley of the Chiefs;” today, you’ll find historic sites, art galleries, and museums featuring Western and Native American exhibits. At Ranchester, take scenic US Hwy. 14 over the Bighorn Range to historic Cody, founded by legendary scout and showman “Buffalo Bill” Cody. Cody is the eastern gateway to Yellowstone National Park. #BHVisitor
