The Crazy Horse Memorial, located outside of Rapid City, South Dakota is a large monument that is still under construction. It will depict the Oglala Lakota Warrior. Riding a horse and pointing to his tribal land. This memorial is years in the making and is a sight to see for most. An attraction for all ages that is part of our history. Many travel to the memorial to see the progress that has been made over the years.
When asked where you might find the largest face in the US, one might think of the Statue of Liberty, whose face is eight feet tall, or better yet, Mount Rushmore, which depicts the visages of four US presidents at around 60 feet or so. However, the real answer lies not far from the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. In fact, just 17 miles away in South Dakota is where you’d find the Crazy Horse Memorial which, even in its unfinished state, is the largest face found in the US and the world, for that matter – it measures in at about 87.5 feet.
Seems like an odd fact but the Crazy Horse Memorial is an interesting monument that is still in progress more than 70 years after it was begun.
