TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Roost Resort Custer
We came for a couple of days and stayed ten! Just loved the gorgeous setting, great location to Custer State Park and the city of Custer, and the friendly interactions with the owners Frank and Susan. They take meticulous, loving care of the place. The cabins are adorable, bathrooms super clean and the grounds well cared for.

... became a millionaire. My thought? He should have just skipped the gold mining and been a poker shark!
There were other interesting things we learned about gold mining. It was the blacksmith who was the richest in town because the miners required a very special starburst shaped tool to drill the rock and each one melted within 90 seconds. There were 12 mines in the area and 6 hours a day or mining or so. That adds up to a lot of starburst ...
... alone wear them away."
I think Mr. Borglum achieved this idea even better then he had imagined. It was striking to me as well to think that this monument may stand much longer then we will. It's possible that in a thousand years, people of the earth will look at Mount Rushmore like we look at the Mayan ruins or the ancient pyramids of Egypt. By that time, our present idea of civilization may be long gone, but hopefully this monument will endure to allow ...
