When visiting Custer SD or Hill City SD one of the most do things to see is the Crazy Horse Memorial. A work still in progress but when finished it will be the largest mountain carving in the world. The Crazy Horse face will measure 87.5 feet high compare to the Mount Rushmore faces at 60 feet. Located only 17 miles from Mount Rushmore National Memorial gives you a perfect opportunity to view both great sculptures on the same trip to South Dakota.
Today sculptures are completing the vision of Korczak Ziolkowski which was started in 1948.
How did the Crazy Horse Memorial come about? It was a request from Chief Henry Standing Bear to show that the Native Indians also had great heroes.
