Mike Wolforth / Mike Wolforth

Rapid City’s newest tourism attraction — Founding Fathers Black Hills — has just opened with the world’s only life-size sculpture of John Trumbull’s famous painting Declaration of Independence inside a reproduction of the historic Independence Hall. Visitors can see 47 original sculptures and listen to a presentation about the American Revolution leading up to the signing of the Declaration. A replica of the Liberty Bell that was cast at the same French foundry as the original bell is scheduled to arrive soon. The attraction is six miles south of Rapid City on the road to Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
