About Mount Rushmore
Mount Rushmore was initially known for many names depending on who you ask over the years. After wealthy investor Charles E. Rushmore regularly visited the site and joked around with colleagues renaming the sculpture after himself, the United States Board of Geographic Names officially recognized it being “Mount Rushmore” in June 1930.
