Every year, nearly 2 million visitors travel to South Dakota. They want to see Mount Rushmore. For 14 years, sculptor Gutzon Borglum carved up the granite mountain. He and nearly 400 workers created 600-foot-high portraits of four U.S. presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.
Like so many famous rocks and rock formations, Mount Rushmore captures people’s imagination.
