The question many wonder its answer is; who did this Mount beget her name from? The Mount was named after Charles E. Rushmore, an attorney in New York who visited the Mount in the 19th century. Legend has it that Rushmore was intrigued by the batholith when he came across it while on a business trip when he inquired about the mountain’s name, his tour guide claimed it had no name and named the mount ‘Rushmore.’ The attorney late donated the sum of $5,000 to fund the project. Click the next ARROW to see the next photo!
