Experience It! Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad
Join us for a ride on the stunning Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Winding through the wilderness, this narrowgauge
railway was originally constructed to haul gold and silver ore from the San Juan Mountains. Due to the incredible views, it
soon became popular with passengers and tourists alike. The Durango & Silverton has run continuously since 1881. Over that
time, it has seen many changes…yet the durable line continues to roll on in much the same fashion as those early days. Today,
this line (now a National Historic Landmark) carries guests behind vintage, coal-fired steam locomotives.

Experience It! See History Cast in Stone
In 1925, Gutzon Borglum set out to create a gigantic work of art. Armed with four hundred men and one million dollars, he began carving a 5,725-foot mountain into a national masterpiece. The mountain’s name is Mount Rushmore and the men whose images are carved into its façade symbolize the first 150 years of United States history. Immortalized in stone are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

Creating the memorial was a difficult task. The rock on Mount Rushmore was so strong, dynamite was the most practical way to mold the monument. Once the stone was blasted to within inches of Borglum’s measurements, the faces were fine-tuned with hammers and chisels. Fourteen years after construction began, Borglum died, leaving the final phases of construction to his son, Lincoln. All work on Mount Rushmore concluded for good in October of 1941, on the eve of World War II. Interestingly enough, what you see immortalized in the Black Hills of South Dakota is actually an unfinished masterpiece. Borglum’s original plans called for the four men to be carved all the way down to their waists.
