Mount Rushmore National Memorial

Keystone, South Dakota

This massive, 1,275-acre, carved granite sculpture is one of the country’s most iconic scenes—and not just for its role in Hitchcock’s North by Northwest. Designed and sculpted by a father-son team of Danish-American artists, the carving of the mountain started in 1925 and halted in 1941. Originally it was meant to show off its four subjects from head to waist; insufficient funding was cut off after the heads were completed.
