    allowing for inflation since 1927 Rushmore would cost $12 Million today. Not even enough to cover all the mandated government studies and regulations that would be needed to get a building permit.

    How much is it costing us to maintain it: repairs, upkeep of park and trails, restrooms, etc.?

    It would take 14 year just for the mandated government studies.

    Whether or not anyone stole Mount Rushmore, the sculptor ‘put a good face on it’, four faces in fact!

    Rushmore upkeep pays for itself, ie the inflated motel and eatery prices in the area. Been there in 1944, 1951, 1970, 1997 on way to Pacific NW.
