The Creator of Mount Rushmore National Memorial Park

- The Mount Rushmore National Memorial Park is one of the world's largest sculptural and engineering projects. In 1923, a historian named Doane Robinson came up with the original idea for Mount Rushmore as a way of attracting tourists.

Later that year, his son Lincoln finished the project, which had spanned 14 years (6.5 years of actual carving and 8.5 years of delays due to lack of money and bad weather) at a cost of $1 million Every mo...   [tags: Mount Rushmore, national parks, John Gutzon de la ]
