Did you know they're building a "fifth face" as we speak?

In 1948, seven years after work stopped on nearby Mount Rushmore, grand-scale carving began on the Crazy Horse Memorial. (http://www.ohranger.com/mount-rushmore/crazy-horse)

The Crazy Horse Memorial is located five miles north of Custer on U.S. 16-385. For more information, please contact Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation, Avenue of the Chiefs, Crazy Horse, SD 57730-9506; or call (605) 673-4681.
