Remodeling Project Begins at Mount Rushmore
Image
Xanterra Parks & Resorts has implemented a new pay system at Mount Rushmore. Visitors take a ticket when entering the park and pay at pay stations when exiting the park or at pay stations located throughout the park.

When construction begins, this map shows where visitors can view the Memorial and receive park information.
Our Outstanding enhancements and upgrades are coming to Mount Rushmore National Memorial that will positively impact visitors for years to come.
Construction is slated to begin summer 2019 and last approximately 18 months. Please note the Memorial will remain OPEN to visitors during construction. The map above gives an idea of where services and programs will be provided during the construction. (This is subject to change.)

While construction is underway, the National Park Service wants to encourage visitors to explore everything there is to see and do at Mount Rushmore, especially the TOP 10 THINGS TO DO at the Memorial in 2019.

Beginning May 31, the Mount Rushmore Bookstore in the Lincoln Visitor Center will close, but our store in the Sculptor's Studio will open on June 1. As always, you can purchase Mount Rushmore books and products at our store in the Information Center and through our online store. 
 
Please see the park service website  for more information on the project’s progress.

Chief Operations Officer Debbie Ketel Speas
Email Debbie
Debbie Ketel Speas, COO, has been with the Society for more than 16 years, overseeing publishing, communications, event management and building operations.

"What I find inspiring about Mount Rushmore are the people who came together in the 1920s and 1930s to make a vision of carving Mount Rushmore a reality during the Depression," explains Speas. "One of my favorite quotes by Gutzon Borglum is: 'Don't say 'I can't' on this work. The 'I can'ts' are unknown in the world's work and unremembered in history.'"
Board  Spotlight: Aaron Galloway
Aaron Galloway has been on the Society board for the last five years and is now serving as vice president. Professionally, he is a shareholder with Lynn, Jackson, Shultz & Lebrun, P.C. in the firm's Rapid City office. 

"Wherever my travels take me, as soon as someone finds out that I am from South Dakota, inevitably the Memorial comes up in conversation," says Galloway. "It’s a great sense of pride, and one that is bolstered by the fact that I get to be personally involved in the preservation, promotion and enhancement of the Memorial through our great organization. To me, Mount Rushmore not only celebrates our nation’s history, it is history unto itself."
