"A monument's dimensions should be determined by the importance to civilization of the events commemorated. We are not here trying to carve an epic, portray a moonlight scene, or write a sonnet; neither are we dealing with mystery or tragedy, but rather the constructive and dramatic moments or crises in our amazing history."

An ancient Black Hills' treasure, buried beneath the earth's surface is now yours to discover and explore, just a few miles east of Mount Rushmore. Here you will find beautiful Rushmore Cave, where winding passageways lead you 60 million years back in time.
Big Thunder Gold Mine (Gold Hill Lode), originally named the Gold Hill Lode, was discovered in 1882. The mining work was done by two German immigrants, Krupp and Engle. They did not know each other when they came to the Keystone area, but because they could both speak the same language, they became partners.
You'll be screamin' Mulligans at Keystone's only 18-hole mini-golf.
The Holy Terror Mini Golf course is nestled on the side of a pine-covered slope in Keystone. Named after the last active gold mine in Keystone, the course will have you “screamin’ mulligans” as you putt around gold-flecked boulders, up steep hills, down thru the mine slew, and around the water wheel and bubbling stream.
