This view of the Rushmore Memorial shows the flags of the 50 United States.  Each column face bears the flag of a state, and the date that the state joined the union.  This concourse is part of the Mount Rushmore Visitor Center which was completed in 1998 and was dedicated by President George H. Bush.
