Crazy Horse Memorial

Posted by on July 8, 2013
Located 46 miles southwest of Rapid City S.D., Crazy Horse Memorial was begun in 1948 by Korczak Zuiolkowski. Everything he needed he carried up 700+ steps to the mountain top. He continued to work on it until his death in 1982 when his wife Ruth and seven of their ten children took over. In spite of two $5,000,000 offers from the Federal Government, no government funds have ever been used in the 65 years of the Memorial's  existence. These pictures show it on the day of the first blast in 1948 followed by a 1957 view. CH1948CH1957
