Mount Rushmore (Keystone, SD)
The iconic Mount Rushmore features the massive likenesses of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt chiseled into solid granite. Each face is about 60 feet high. Surprisingly, the total cost of carving the faces was less than a million dollars, and no lives were lost in the 14 years that the project was under construction.
