movie theatre we had passed so Josh and Ben went out at 930pm to
watch a late night movie. While they were gone ...

Of course, detractors and critics disagreed with the carving and the choices, but Congress funded the project, after some finagling by Borglum and U.S. Senator Peter Norbeck. Work commenced in October 1927. The carving was to take 5 years and cost $500,000. In reality, it took 14 years and one million dollars. The carving ended in 1941 when Borglum suddenly died and ...
