The creation of Mount Rushmore, which set the images of four American presidents in towering monumental relief in the Black Hills of South Dakota, began on this day in history, Oct. 4, 1927.
"Mount Rushmore is a project of colossal proportion, colossal ambition and colossal achievement," writes the National Park Service, which assumed management of the landmark by order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933.
The monument immortalizes presidents George Washington (1789-97), Thomas Jefferson (1801-09), Theodore Roosevelt (1901-09) and Abraham Lincoln (1861-65).
