Horse Memorial, located on hiway 16 between Custer and Hill City, is going to be the worlds
largest sculpture - carved right out of the mountain. It was begun in
1948 by sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski
at the request of Native Americans. The sculpture portrays the chief Crazy Horse, who among other things
lead the battles of Little Bighorn in 1876.
