Yes, there really is a secret room hidden inside Mount Rushmore

National Treasure 2 is almost a complete fabrication of American history, but Nicolas Cage was right about one thing… there most definitely IS a secret room filled with very special stuff tucked up inside Mount Rushmore… It’s called the Hall of Records, and this is how it came to be…

Gutzon Borglum, the original sculptor of Mount Rushmore, had a big vision for his massive South Dakota monument… For starters he wanted least 4 famous Americans, all from the waist-up (clearly, not how Mount Rushmore is today), but after that he wanted even more… Borglum wanted major events in United States history like the Louisiana Purchase etched into the mountain rock as well. Finally, he wanted his “Hall of Records.”

National Park Service
Borglum envisioned Mount Rushmore becoming the United States’ Stonehenge, something that would tell a story thousands of years after we’re gone, thus, he wanted a Hall of Records that could speak to future humans, even if it was thousands of years down the road.
Unfortunately, pretty much all his plans got scaled back… Forget the extra etchings of the Louisiana Purchase… Take the portraits of the presidents and make them busts… Forget about your little Hall of Records.

National Park Service
Thankfully, construction had at least started on the Hall of Records, so we’re left today with a mythical little room carved deep in the South Dakota mountains. Nearly 60 years after Borglum’s death, his vision finally became, at least partially, a reality… reports:
The idea of having a vault didn't die though. Borglum's original plan was revised a bit, but the intent remained, and in 1998, tablets with the story of our nation were sealed in a vault in the unfinished Hall of Records. Sixteen porcelain enamel panels containing the text from the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, along with a biography of Borglum, and the story of the presidents, were sealed in a teakwood box, then placed in a titanium vault, and finally sealed shut under the weight of a 1,200 pound granite capstone inside the unfinished hall.

Of course, the Hall of Records is not open to the public- a “safety issue,” says the National Park Service, but maybe it’s because it’s filled with the lost treasure of Native tribes! Wait, I’m thinking of National Treasure 2 again. Darnit.

You can’t drive to the Hall of Records, but you can road trip to Mount Rushmore. This scenic drive will make your trip there even more excellent:
