Top 10 National Monuments in the United States of America

Mount Rushmore

There are 112 official national monuments in America which are administered and protected by the National Park Service. Some these US monuments form landmarks that have become national symbols, such as the Statue of Liberty.  While the sizes, shapes and appearance of each monument varies greatly, each is equally as beautiful and significant. The first U.S. national monuments were established by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906.

The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota. Mount Rushmore National Memorial is visited by nearly three million people each year that come to marvel at the majestic beauty of the Black Hills of South Dakota and learn about the birth, growth, development and preservation of the country.  George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln forever in our memories.

Mount Rushmore, South Dakota

The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, designated as a National Monument in 1924 and restored for her centennial on July 4, 1986.  The history of the Statue of Liberty is just as fascinating as the monument itself. Visit the Statue of Liberty and Tour the Ellis Island Immigration Museum.
